I’m learning to use the path mapper component to perform a flip matrix operation on a tree that has branches that differ in more than a single locus.
The issue is the following:
When using flip matrix: if the number of indices differ from one branch to another, after the operation is completed null “placeholders” are added to the new branch.
When performing the same operation with the Path Mapper, null “placeholders” are not generated.
So, why is this and how could I still create those nulls indices?
Obviously, I’m working on data structures that require the use of path mapper instead of flip matrix so I need to understand it’s behaviour.
I will leave the file below, any help would be appreciated.
