[Algorithms for constructing phylogenetic trees of maximum topological similarity].

[Article in Russian]


The paper concerns the practical realization of the maximum topologic similarity principle for phylogenetic reconstruction. This novel principle is described in the accompanying paper. Two algorithms that were embodied in the computer program allow one to find out the unique tree in case when source data admit the existence of such tree. In case if numerous parallel mutations make such precise realization impossible, algorithms allow one to obtain approximations to the maximum topologic similarity trees with a high computation efficiency. Examples illustrating use of these algorithms, as well as discussion of biological consistency of the novel concept are presented.
