Title: Generation theory: application to the genography problem
Abstract: The generation theory was developed as a tool for studying self-reproducing systems. In this talk we show how this theory can be applied to study a search for common ancestors of living organisms.
We give two algorithms with flowcharts in pseudocode for finding the common ancestors of a set of microbes and describe the connections with the genography problem.
