Phylogenetic tree reconciliation is the method of choice in analysing host-symbiont systems. Despite the many reconciliation tools that have been proposed in the literature, two main issues remain unresolved: (i) listing suboptimal solutions (i.e. whose score is “close” to the optimal ones) and (ii) listing only solutions that are biologically different “enough”. The first issue arises because the optimal solutions are not always the ones biologically most significant; providing many suboptimal solutions as alternatives for the optimal ones is thus very useful. The second one is related to the difficulty to analyse an often huge number of optimal solutions. In this paper, we propose Capybara that addresses both of these problems in an efficient way. Furthermore, it includes a tool for visualising the solutions that significantly helps the user in the process of analysing the results..
Many of the most used algorithms for co-phylogenetic reconstructions on host-parasite associations are based on an event-based model, where the events include in general (a subset of) co-speciation, duplication, loss, and host-switch. All known event-based methods then assign a cost to each type of event in order to ﬁnd a reconstruction of minimum cost. The main problem with this approach is that the cost of the events strongly inﬂuence the reconciliation obtained. COALA was designed for estimating the frequency of the events based on an approximate Bayesian computation approach.
EUCALYPT was designed for reconciling phylogenetic trees of host and parasite systems. It can also be applied to gene/species trees in the context of the DTL model. EUCALYPT has many features. It can find one optimal reconciliation of a pair of trees, can compute the number of all optimal solutions, and most important can list them all. The first two problems are handled in polynomial time, while the enumeration has a polynomial delay complexity. Eucalypt could also compute some statistics on the solutions obtained and allows for arbitrary cost values. It can also consider a variation of the problem where the length of host-switches is bounded by some parameter in input.
