Publications related to 'Program Marlon' : MARLON (Minimum Amount of Reticulation Level One Network) is a program which reconstructs a level1 phylogenetic network (i.e. galled tree), with the minimum number of reticulation nodes, from a set of triplets.

"A phylogenetic network is a directed acyclic graph that visualizes an evolutionary history containing socalled reticulations such as recombinations, hybridizations or lateral gene transfers. Here we consider the construction of a simplest possible phylogenetic network consistent with an input set T, where T contains at least one phylogenetic tree on three leaves (a triplet) for each combination of three taxa. To quantify the complexity of a network we consider both the total number of reticulations and the number of reticulations per biconnected component, called the level of the network. We give polynomialtime algorithms for constructing a level1 respectively a level2 network that contains a minimum number of reticulations and is consistent with T (if such a network exists). In addition, we show that if T is precisely equal to the set of triplets consistent with some network, then we can construct such a network with smallest possible level in time O(T k+1), if k is a fixed upper bound on the level of the network. © 2009 The Author(s)."
