A Beta-splitting model for evolutionary trees.

In this article, we construct a generalization of the Blum-François Beta-splitting model for evolutionary trees, which was itself inspired by Aldous' ...

Behavior Trees for Evolutionary Robotics.
Evolutionary Robotics allows robots with limited sensors and processing to tackle complex tasks by means of sensory-motor coordination. In this article we show the first application of the Behavior Tree framework on a real robotic platform using the

phyC: Clustering cancer evolutionary trees.
Multi-regional sequencing provides new opportunities to investigate genetic heterogeneity within or between common tumors from an evolutionary perspective. Several state-of-the-art methods have been proposed for reconstructing cancer evolutionary tre

Lamprey: a model for vertebrate evolutionary research.
Lampreys belong to the superclass Cyclostomata and represent the most ancient group of vertebrates. Existing for over 360 million years, they are known as living fossils due to their many evolutionally conserved features. They are not only a keystone

SICLE: a high-throughput tool for extracting evolutionary relationships from phylogenetic trees.
We present the phylogeny analysis software SICLE (Sister Clade Extractor), an easy-to-use, high-throughput tool to describe the nearest neighbors to a node of interest in a phylogenetic tree as well as the support value for the relationship. The appl

An Evolutionary View on Disulfide Bond Connectivities Prediction Using Phylogenetic Trees and a Simple Cysteine Mutation Model.
Disulfide bonds are crucial for many structural and functional aspects of proteins. They have a stabilizing role during folding, can regulate enzymatic activity and can trigger allosteric changes in the protein structure. Moreover, knowledge of the t

Domestication as a model system for the extended evolutionary synthesis.
One of the challenges in evaluating arguments for extending the conceptual framework of evolutionary biology involves the identification of a tractable model system that allows for an assessment of the core assumptions of the extended evolutionary sy

Rasch Trees: A New Method for Detecting Differential Item Functioning in the Rasch Model.
A variety of statistical methods have been suggested for detecting differential item functioning (DIF) in the Rasch model. Most of these methods are designed for the comparison of pre-specified focal and reference groups, such as males and females. L

A parsimonious mixture of Gaussian trees model for oversampling in imbalanced and multimodal time-series classification.
We propose a novel framework of using a parsimonious statistical model, known as mixture of Gaussian trees, for modeling the possibly multimodal minority class to solve the problem of imbalanced time-series classification. By exploiting the fact that

Kernel method based human model for enhancing interactive evolutionary optimization.
A fitness landscape presents the relationship between individual and its reproductive success in evolutionary computation (EC). However, discrete and approximate landscape in an original search space may not support enough and accurate information fo

Evolutionary patterns of range size, abundance and species richness in Amazonian angiosperm trees.
Amazonian tree species vary enormously in their total abundance and range size, while Amazonian tree genera vary greatly in species richness. The drivers of this variation are not well understood. Here, we construct a phylogenetic hypothesis that rep
