Phylo_win is a graphical colour interface for molecular phylogenetic inference.
It performs neighbor-joining, parsimony and maximum likelihood methods and
bootstrap with any of them. Many distances can be used including Jukes &
Cantor, Kimura, Tajima & Nei, HKY, Galtier & Gouy (1995), LogDet for
nucleotidic sequences, Poisson correction for protein sequences, Ka and Ks
for codon sequences. Species and sites to include in the analysis are
selected by mouse. Reconstructed trees can be drawn, edited, printed, stored
and evaluated according to numerous criteria.
Use of Phylo_win
Taxonomic species groups and sets of conserved regions can be defined using
mouse and stored into sequence files, thus avoiding multiple data files.
The program is entirely mouse-driven. On-line
makes it easy to use. Most usual sequence file formats in phylogeney can be
read: CLUSTAL, FASTA, PHYLIP and MASE. A screen shot of the main window is
