MBEToolbox 3.0 – MATLAB Molecular Biology & Evolution Toolbox

MBEToolbox 3.0


MBEToolbox is a tool which aimed at filling this gap by offering efficient implementations of the most needed functions in molecular biology and evolution. It can be used to manipulate aligned sequences, calculate evolutionary distances, estimate synonymous and nonsynonymous substitution rates, and infer phylogenetic trees. Moreover, it provides an extensible, functional framework for users with more specialized requirements to explore and analyze aligned nucleotide or protein sequences from an evolutionary perspective. The full functions in the toolbox are accessible through the command-line for seasoned Matlab users. A graphical user interface, that may be especially useful for non-specialist end users, is also provided. MBEToolbox is a useful tool that can aid in the exploration, interpretation and visualization of data in molecular biology and evolution.
