Distance-based Species Tree Estimation: Information-Theoretic Trade-off between Number of Loci and Sequence Length under the Coalescent

Abstract

We consider the reconstruction of a phylogeny from multiple genes under the multispecies coalescent. We establish a connection with the sparse signal detection problem, where one seeks to distinguish between a distribution and a mixture of the distribution and a sparse signal. Using this connection, we derive an information-theoretic trade-off between the number of genes needed for an accurate reconstruction and the sequence length of the genes.
