Tree Reconstruction from Incomplete Distances With NJ* or bio-NJ*
Reconstructs a phylogenetic tree from a distance matrix with possibly missing values.
njs(X, fs = 15) bionjs(X, fs = 15)
Missing values represented by either
NA or any negative number.
Basically, the Q* criterion is applied to all the pairs of leaves, and the s highest scoring ones are chosen for further analysis by the agglomeration criteria that better handle missing distances (see references for details).
