  • Simulated datasets for testing DTRL reconciliation algorithms and classification of additive and replacing transfers

    The following simulated datasets contain gene trees and species trees where the gene trees were evolved inside the species tree with gene duplications, additive transfers, replacing transfers, and gene losses, using the SaGePhy simulation framework. These datasets were used in the paper cited below to test the accuracy of a heuristic for classifying transfer events inferred through DTL reconciliation as being additive or replacing. The paper contains a detailed description of these datasets.

  • COVID-19 dataset for inferring global/international COVID-19 transmission network

    This dataset includes the GISAID accession numbers for 2123 downloaded and filtered SARS-CoV-2 sequences (downloaded from GISAID in June 2020) from 59 countries, the specific command used to align those sequences, and the 10 bootstrap phylogenies computed on the aligned sequences using RAxML. This dataset was used to infer the international COVID-19 transmission network using TNet. Following GISAID’s policies, actual sequences have not been included in this dataset. The actual genomic sequences and associated metadata (including country of origin, country of exposure, etc.) can be downloaded from GISAID using the provided accession numbers. The manuscript cited below contains a detailed description of this dataset.
