Algorithms of Evolution

Evolutionary mechanisms have inspired mathematical modeling, and computational methods underpin investigations into bioinformatics and biological evolution.

Maximum parsimony, or parsimony, is a non-parametric statistical method for estimating phylogenetic relationships.

Maximum parsimony is a character-based tree-estimation method that compares candidate phylogenetic trees, based upon morphological features, according to a explicit optimality criterion.
