Abstract

Comparing phylogenetic trees is an important part of analyzing biological data sets. Many of the popular distance metrics are NP-hard but have been shown to efficient to approximate and tractable in small cases. We discuss recent results in comparing two phylogenetic trees under the tree-bisection-and-reconnection (TBR) and subtree-prune-and-regraft (SPR) distances.
