Approximate Searching in Phylogenetic Databases
This paper presents background information about phylogenetic trees and possible methods for comparing the structures of these trees. Phylogeny, or the study of the evolutionary development of organisms, provides a vast amount of data, most of which is represented in the form of trees. Traditional methods for querying these trees can be inefficient. Therefore, more effective methods need to be developed. Here, we present two possible schemes for querying these trees, analyze them and introduce improvements on these methods.
