I have some questions about comparing (the topology of) phylogenetic
(i) Page has introduced a formalization of comparing (oa) gene and
species trees. The difference is explained by a reconciled tree. Is there
a UNIX program of this method available, and if so where?
(ii) Are there any other methods/programs available for comparing trees,
which use more information (for example bootstrap values) and/or offer
other ways to reconcile the trees (e.g. in terms of horizontal transfer).
If anybody knows anything about these things and inform me about them, I
would greatly appriciate some of his remarks.
