Software

    • COALA
      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
      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.
