Ancestral gene sequence reconstruction benchmarked via synthetic phylogeny [Phys]

par Frédéric Magné - publié le

For some 20 years, scientists have used algorithms to compute their way hundreds of millions of years back into the evolutionary past. Starting with present-day gene sequences, they perform what’s called ancestral sequence reconstruction (ASR) to determine past mutations and figure out the genes’ primal forerunners.
