SPhyR: tumor phylogeny estimation from single-cell sequencing data under loss and error. Results: We introduce Single-cell Phylogeny Reconstruction (SPhyR), a method for tumor phylogeny estimation from single-cell sequencing data. In light of frequent loss of SNVs due to CNAs in cancer, SPhyR employs the k-Dollo evolutionary model, where a mutation can only be gained once but lost k times. Underlying SPhyR is a novel combinatorial characterization of solutions as constrained integer matrix completions, based on a connection to the cladistic multi-state perfect phylogeny problem. SPhyR outperforms existing methods on simulated data and on a metastatic colorectal cancer.
