Welcome to Shortest Triplet ClusteringIntroduction:We propose a new distancebased clustering method, triplet clustering algorithm (STC), to reconstruct phylogenies. The main idea is the introduction of a natural definition of socalled krepresentative sets. Based on krepresentative sets, shortest triplets are reconstructed and serve as building blocks for the STC algorithm to agglomerate sequences for tree reconstruction in O(n^2) time for n sequences. Simulations with 500, 1000 and 5000 sequences data sets show that STC gives better topological accuracy than other methods tested.Reference:The method is described in detail in the following article:
