A generic and versatile architecture for inference of evolutionary trees under maximum likelihood

Nikolaos Alachiotis, Alexandros Stamatakis
2010 2010 Conference Record of the Forty Fourth Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems and Computers  
We propose a dedicated computer architecture for the inference of phylogenies under the maximum likelihood criterion.  ...  It can also optimize the branch lengths of tree topologies and calculate transition probability matrices. We used FPGA technology to verify the correctness of our architecture.  ...  Hence the PLF as used in Bayesian inference programs is less complex than for ML programs.  ...
