We compare mitochondrial DNA of different species to build a phylogenetic tree. The main challenge is that the calculation of the Levenshtein distance is very slow for large sequences. We introduce an approximate scheme which uses Levenshtein for lower-level details and a fast distance based on sequence length for high-level attributes. The tree is built using average linkage hierarchical clustering.doi:10.1101/2022.02.08.479565 fatcat:qvczjjuqgraa7labcmq2n4mjo4
