NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Using an experimentally derived phylogeny, a team of Georgia Tech researchers has benchmarked several algorithms that reconstruct ancestral sequences.

Such ancestral sequence reconstructions (ASRs) can help researchers peer into past protein function or provide jumping-off points for protein engineering. But as ancestral sequences have been lost to time, judging how well the algorithms perform has largely relied on computer simulations.
