Methods and Applications in Molecular Phylogenetics

About this Research Topic

Molecular phylogenetics analyses the evolutionary history of species or genes by comparing the characteristics of molecular sequences. The initial stage of molecular phylogenetics consists in studying the genetic sequence. In this stage, the evolutionary relationships between species are described by gene evolution relationships among species. With the completion of a large number of genome sequences, the new field of molecular phylogenetics benefits from large amounts of genomic data to study the evolutionary relationship between organisms.

This Research Topic focuses on methods and applications in molecular phylogenetics. The Editors encourage manuscripts reporting new or improved algorithms, models, software, and online resources dealing with the sub-topics below (including some form of validation is highly encouraged):

• Algorithms for constructing phylogenetic trees or phylogenetic networks
• Evolutionary analysis of species from nucleotide or amino acid sequences and structures from genomic data
• Mathematical or statistical modelling of genes/genomes evolution
• Computational methods for comparing phylogenetic trees or phylogenetic networks
• Recognition and analysis of genomic rearrangement events, horizontal gene transfer, replication etc.


Keywords: Molecular phylogenetics, Genes, Genome, Evolution


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
