ISIPhyNC - Problem: Cluster Containment


Does the input network contain the input subset of leaves as a softwired cluster?

Bibliographic references on the Who is who in phylogenetic networks

More formally

Input: A phylogenetic network N on a set X of taxa and a subset C of X.
Output: YES if N contains a tree which has C as a cluster, NO otherwise.
