Comparative study of HGT inference methods: Inference of Horizontal Gene Transfer is a difficult problem, largely due to the lack of positive datasets against which these methods can be tested. As a result not only is the task of estimating their accuracy difficult, but so is comparing these methods against each other, and developing any benchmark against which they can be tested. Inference methods often rely on simulations to create the positive dataset, which would be using a similar modelling scheme as the inference method itself. In this project, we test whether the state of the art methods agree with what we already know about HGT as a biological phenomena, using real data instead of simulated data.
