bootstrap
a method for assessing the statistical significance the positions of branches in a phylogenetic tree that is inferred by a pairwise method (e g Neighbor-Joining or UPGMA) A bootstrap starts with a set of sequences in which every possible sequence pair has been aligned For each aligned pair, it samples scores from random positions in the alignment, adding the scores This is repeated until the pseudo-alignment is the same length as the real alignment When all the pairs have been sampled, it converts the scores to distances and computes a tree This whole process is repeated many times and the frequency with which particular tree features are observed is taken as a measure of the probability that the feature is correct See Bootstrap in Detail for more
bootstrap
Referring to a self-generating or self-sustaining process
bootstrap
The technique of random resampling from a given sample (usually with replacement, but sometimes without replacement using an extensive replication of the given sample to resample from) and computation of the statistic of interest after each resampling Because the given sample should be shaped approximately like the unknown population, the bootstrap-produced distribution of the statistic of interest (as given by its relative frequency histogram) should be a good estimate of the unknown theoretical distribution of the statistic of interest Many nonparametric estimation and hypothesis testing procedures can be constructed using bootstrapping to estimate the unknown distribution of the statistic of interest

bootstrap

bootstrap
