Sister-Scanning: a Monte Carlo procedure for assessing signals in recombinant sequences.

Gibbs, Mark; Armstrong, Jessica; Gibbs, Adrian


Motivation: To devise a method that, unlike available methods, directly measures variations in phylogenetic signals in gene sequences that result from recombination, tests the significance of the signal variations and distinguishes misleading signals. Results: We have developed a method, that we call 'sister-scanning', for assessing phylogenetic and compositional signals in the various patterns of identity that occur between four nucleotide sequences. A Monte Carlo randomization is done for all...[Show more]
