Identifies loci containing elevated densities of base substitutions while concurrently constructing a phylogeny based on the putative point mutations outside of these regions. Gubbins uses spatial scanning statistics to identify loci containing elevated densities of base substitutions suggestive of horizontal sequence transfer. Gubbins is also a practical tool in the context of current sequencing capacity; it is typically able to converge on a result for an alignment of 100 two megabase sequences in well under an hour, whereas others sophisticated model fitting can take weeks to analyze a much smaller number of genomes.
