One possible method for selecting the parsing is to choose the parsing that minimises the parsimony score of the resulting DHT. However, obtaining the maximum parsimony DHT can be computationally expensive (especially when the motif is long or there are many copies), and in some cases the maximum parsimony tree cannot be expressed as a duplication tree (Gascuel et al. [9]). In these circumstances it may be preferable to find more tractable measures for comparing parsings. The three criteria we propose are heuristic, and are intended as easily computed surrogates for the score of the maximum parsimony tree.

SCJ: a breakpoint-like distance that simplifies several rearrangement problems. IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics 8, 1318–1329 (2011) 9. : Multi-break rearrangements and chromosomal evolution. Theoretical Computer Science 395(2-3), 193–202 (2008) 10. : The solution space of sorting by DCJ. br Abstract. We study the problem of sorting by transpositions, which is related to comparative genomics. Our goal is to determine how good approximation algorithms which do not rely on the cycle graph are when it comes to approximation ratios by implementing three such algorithms.

J be a strip of γ. We have that lc(γk+1 ) = lc(γk ) and rc(γk+1 ) = rc(γk ), i ≤ k < j. It means that, with respect to lc(γ) and rc(γ), the elements belonging to a strip of γ either have zero value or are contained in the same plateau. Therefore, s(γ) ≥ p(lc(γ)) and s(γ) ≥ p(rc(γ)), thus s(γ) ≥ p(γ). Since, by Lemma 2, b(γ) > s(γ), the claim follows. By using a structure based on breakpoints, Walter, Dias, and Meidanis [10] were able to develop an approximation algorithm that removes at least 4 breakpoints with 3 transpositions.
