FastRFS: fast and accurate Robinson Foulds Supertrees using constrained exact optimization

PMCID: 5870905
PMID: 27663499
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw600
call_split See protocol

[…] The input to the FastRFS method is a set T of unrooted source trees, but they do not need to be binary trees (i.e. polytomies are allowed). In the basic FastRFS method, we use ASTRAL-2 to compute the set X of allowed […]
