ms609/SlowQuartet: Comparison of Phylogenetic Trees Using Quartet and Bipartition Measures

Calculates the number of four-taxon subtrees consistent with a pair of cladograms, calculating the symmetric quartet distance of Bandelt & Dress (1986), Reconstructing the shape of a tree from observed dissimilarity data, Advances in Applied Mathematics, 7, 309-343 <doi:10.1016/0196-8858(86)90038-2>, and using the tqDist algorithm of Sand et al. (2014), tqDist: a library for computing the quartet and triplet distances between binary or general trees, Bioinformatics, 30, 2079–2080 <doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btu157> for pairs of bifurcating trees.
