Homology and the optimization of DNA sequence data

Cladistics. 2001 Mar;17(1 Pt 2):S3-11. doi: 10.1006/clad.2000.0154.

Abstract

Three methods of nucleotide character analysis are discussed. Their implications for molecular sequence homology and phylogenetic analysis are compared. The criterion of inter-data set congruence, both character based and topological, are applied to two data sets to elucidate and potentially discriminate among these parsimony-based ideas.
