Identification of character non-independence in phylogenetic data using data mining and neural network techniques
Keywords and Phrases
"Difficult problems force innovative approaches and attention to detail, and their pursuit often results in contributions beyond the initial scope. This thesis investigates the data mining process resulting from examining the hypothesis of character non-independence in phylogenetic analyses. Phylogenetics is the study of identifying and classifying evolutionary relationships of organisms and plays an important role in the organization of biological data at levels ranging from molecules to ecosystems. It forms the basis of many biological research questions; hence, highly accurate estimates of evolutionary history are fundamentally important to most biological applications"--Abstract, leaf iv.
