Selecting genomes for reconstruction of ancestral genomes

Date: 
Thursday 20th December 2007 - 10:20 to 10:40
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Chair: 
Daniel Huson
Abstract: 

It is often impossible to sequence all descendent genomes to reconstruct an ancestral genome. This fact leads to studying the genome selection for reconstruction problem. The talk covers our recent work in reconstruction accuracy analysis and greedy algorithm for the problem of selecting a given number of genomes for the best reconstruction.
