[…] which is then used to reconstruct the species tree under the corresponding optimality criterion. finally, other methods try to minimize topological distances among gene trees, such as the rf [,] and mulrf [] supertree approaches., many species tree reconstruction methods explicitly consider a single evolutionary process. some rely on the optimization of a gene tree–species tree reconciliation […]

[…] leaf from one tree is mapped to at most one leaf from the other, restricting therefore the gene families that can be considered. however, very recently a generalization of the rf distance called mulrf was introduced that relaxes this constraint, allowing for one of the two trees in the distance calculation to have several leaves with the same label (). this multilabelled tree, or multree, […]

[…] rf distance between two mul-trees; however, it is easy to calculate this distance between a mul-tree and a singly-labeled species tree. motivated by this, we formulate the rf problem for mul-trees (mulrf) as follows: given a collection of multi-copy gene trees, find a singly-labeled species tree that minimizes the total rf distance from the input mul-trees. we develop and implement a fast […]
