Phylogeny: Reconstructing Evolutionary History • Goal: infer past history that produced a set of modern characters (sequences, typically). • Ingredients: – Characters: e.g. sequence differences – Evolutionary model • Distance metric • Probabilistic model of evolution • Output: an evolutionary tree

What is a Tree? • A tree is a connected graph consisting of nodes (sequences) and edges (that each connect a pair of nodes) with no cycles (path of edges that returns to its starting point). • There exists a single unique path between any pair of nodes. Not a tree, due to cycle Modern sequences Ancestral sequences

Interpreting Phylogenetic Trees: Characters Any set of objects (species; genes; proteins) can be analyzed for their evolutionary relationships. Call them the “operational taxonomic units” (OTU). • Phylogeny is based on differences between the OTUs: characters . These could be sequence differences; anatomical differences, etc.

The longer the branch the more change Characters Phylogenetic Tree •Length of a branch is proportional to number of differences •Tree shows order of divergences

Phylogeny: Standard Assumptions •Sequences diverge by bifurcation events (no trifurcations etc.). (Model forms a tree). •Sequences are essentially independent once they diverge from their common ancestor. •The probability of observing nucleotide k at site j in the future depends only on the current nucleotide at site j . (Markov Chain assumption). •Different sites (characters) within a sequence evolve independently.
