FastTree 2.1.11 – Cmpute Large Minimum Evolution Trees with Profiles

FastTree 2.1.11

:: DESCRIPTION

FastTree infers approximately-maximum-likelihood phylogenetic trees from alignments of nucleotide or protein sequences. FastTree can handle alignments with up to a million of sequences in a reasonable amount of time and memory.

METREE 1.2 – Infer and Test Minimum Evolution Trees

METREE 1.2

:: DESCRIPTION

METREE is intended to find the minimum evolution (ME) tree that has the smallest value of the sum of branch lengths (S) for a set of  sequences, identify a set of trees whose S are not significantly different from that of the ME tree, and print out the resulting trees in a publishable form. The branch lengths for each topology are estimated by the ordinary least-squares method from a matrix of evolutionary distances.
