Model checking software for phylogenetic trees using distribution and database methods

José Ignacio Requeno, José Manuel Colom
2013 Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics  
However, the performance of traditional model checking is penalized when scaling the system for large phylogenies. To this end, two strategies are presented here.  ...  Model checking, a generic and formal paradigm stemming from computer science based on temporal logics, has been proposed for the study of biological properties that emerge from the labeling of the states  ...  Slicing the State Phylogenetic model checking usually associates a complete DNA sequence per node of the tree.  ...
