Arlequin provides the average user in population genetics with quite a large set of basic methods and statistical tests, in order to extract information on genetic and demographic features of a collection of population samples. The graphical interface is designed to allow users to rapidly select the different analyses they want to perform on their data. One can explore the data, and analyze several times the same data set from different perspectives, with different selected options.
MLtree is a software to compute maximum likelihood optimization of models of character evolution (either DNA or phenotypic ones) along the branches of a phylogenetic tree. It is assuming that the phylogenetic tree is known.
Phylogibbs is an algorithm for discovering regulatory sites in a collection of DNA sequences, including multiple alignments of orthologous sequences from related organisms.The algorithm uses a Gibbs sampling strategy, takes the phylogenetic relationships of the input sequences rigorously into account, and assigns realistic posterior probabilities to reported sites using a novel annealing+tracking strategy.
