Determining phylogenetic networks from inter-taxa distances.

Bordewich, M. and Semple, C. (2016) 'Determining phylogenetic networks from inter-taxa distances.', Journal of mathematical biology., 73 (2). pp. 283-303.


We consider the problem of determining the topological structure of a phylogenetic network given only information about the path-length distances between taxa. In particular, one of the main results of the paper shows that binary tree-child networks are essentially determined by such information.
