Early evolution of gene superfamilies

Current Research

Phylogenetic analysis of gene superfamilies is a key challenge in evolutionary biology because present methods show poor performance when genes share a very distant evolutionary origin. Therefore, I proposed the novel phylogenetic method using a graph-based approach and showed its better performance than any other method based on simulation studies. Using this method, I aim to resolve the early evolution of gene superfamilies.
