On intervalizing \(k\)-colored graphs for DNA physical mapping. (English) Zbl 0867.92008
Summary: The problem of determining whether a given \(k\)-colored graph is a subgraph of a properly colored interval graph has an application in DNA physical mapping. We study the problem for the case that the number of colors \(k\) is fixed. For \(k=2\), we give a simple linear time algorithm, for \(k=3\), we give an \(O(n^2)\) algorithm for biconnected graphs with \(n\) vertices, and for \(k=4\), we show that the problem is NP-complete.
