Robustness of the Parsimonious Reconciliation Method in Cophylogeny


The aim of this paper is to explore the robustness of the parsimonious host-symbiont tree reconciliation method under editing or small perturbations of the input. The editing involves making different choices of unique symbiont mapping to a host in the case where multiple associations exist. This is made necessary by the fact that no tree reconciliation method is currently able to handle such associations. The analysis performed could however also address the problem of errors. The perturbations are re-rootings of the symbiont tree to deal with a possibly wrong placement of the root specially in the case of fast-evolving species. In order to do this robustness analysis, we introduce a simulation scheme specifically designed for the host-symbiont cophylogeny context, as well as a measure to compare sets of tree reconciliations, both of which are of interest by themselves.
