[…] uses a network to represent vafs constraints imposed by the evolutionary process. it then identifies an evolutionary model by looking for the spanning tree that best supports the cluster vaf data. bitphylogeny (yuan et al., ) provides a probabilistic framework that allows the joint inference of the number and composition of clones in a tumor, as well as the most probable tree representing […]

[…] related mutations in the 58 single cells of , for example, the empirical bayes estimate of the prior tree structure is highly linear while the resulting minimum spanning tree is rather branched., bitphylogeny  works on the sample tree representation, but rather than using the single cells as leaves they are clustered together into clones. since the number of clones and their composition […]
