We present an error analysis on the application of non-linear embedding on pairwise evolutionary distances inferred over a collection of genetic sequences following multiple sequence alignment. To this end, we have generated gene sequences evolved by random substitutions along three different evolutionary pathways with known evolutionary distances between every sequence pair. We have compared the discrepancy between the inferred evolutionary distances to the true distances before and after non-linear embedding into a low dimensional vector space. The results indicate that non-linear embedding achieves significant reduction in error in the estimated evolutionary distances. Consequently, nonlinear embedding of evolutionary distances can provide more reliable inferences on the evolutionary relationships between genetic sequences. ©2010 IEEE.
