Non-bifurcating phylogenetic tree inference via the adaptive LASSO

28 May 2018 Cheng Zhang Vu Dinh Frederick A. Matsen IV

Phylogenetic tree inference using deep DNA sequencing is reshaping our understanding of rapidly evolving systems, such as the within-host battle between viruses and the immune system. Densely sampled phylogenetic trees can contain special features, including "sampled ancestors" in which we sequence a genotype along with its direct descendants, and "polytomies" in which multiple descendants arise simultaneously...
