Baobab is an editor for large phylogenetic trees written in Java. It allows you to create and/or modify a tree interactively, adding/(re)moving branches and nodes, changing leave names, setting parameters. Baobab focuses on edition, not representation and display that are only used as a tool to make edition easier.
RAxML (Randomized Axelerated Maximum Likelihood) is a program for sequential and parallel Maximum Likelihood based inference of large phylogenetic trees. It has originally been derived from fastDNAml which in turn was derived from Joe Felsentein’s dnaml which is part of the PHYLIP package.
RAxML-NG is a phylogenetic tree inference tool which uses maximum-likelihood (ML) optimality criterion. Its search heuristic is based on iteratively performing a series of Subtree Pruning and Regrafting (SPR) moves, which allows to quickly navigate to the best-known ML tree. RAxML-NG is a successor of RAxML (Stamatakis 2014) and leverages the highly optimized likelihood computation implemented in libpll (Flouri et al. 2014).
TreePlus is a visualizer to enable exploration of large, complex food webs. Ultimately, this system, embedded in ecoLens, will allow biologists to test approaches to modelling interactions among organisms.
STC (shortest triplet clustering algorithm) is a software to reconstruct phylogenies. The main idea is the introduction of a natural definition of so-called k-representative sets. Based on k-representative sets, shortest triplets are reconstructed and serve as building blocks for the STC algorithm to agglomerate sequences for tree reconstruction in O(n2) time for n sequences.
ProfDist is a user-friendly software package using the profile-neighbor-joining method (PNJ) in inferring phylogenies based on profile distances on DNA or RNA sequences. It is a tool for reconstructing and visualizing large phylogenetic trees providing new and standard features with a special focus on time efficency, robustness and accuracy.
