Dendroscope 3 is a new program for working with rooted phylogenetic trees and networks. It provides a number of methods for drawing and comparing rooted phylogenetic networks, and for computing them from rooted trees. The program can be used interactively or in command-line mode. The program is written in Java, use of the software is free, and installers for all 3 major operating systems can be downloaded from [Phylogenetic trees; phylogenetic networks; software.].

It is shown that QuickCass can construct simpler phylogenetic networks than BIMLR and is a polynomial-time algorithm when the output network that is constructed by QuickCass is binary.

PhyloNetworks: A Package for Phylogenetic Networks

PhyloNetworks is a Julia package for the inference, manipulation, visualization, and use of phylogenetic networks in an interactive environment and is the first software providing tools to summarize a set of networks with measures of tree edge support, hybrid edge Support, and hybrid node support.

Besides the on-line computation service, the IGNet also provides downloadable Java programs of Open image in new window and BIMLR for off-line construction of rooted phylogenetic networks.

Do Phylogenetic Tree Viewers correctly display Support Values

The problems that can and do arise when displaying branch support values on trees are discussed and it is suggested that branch supportvalues should exclusively be stored as meta-data associated to branches (and not nodes), and if this is not feasible, tree viewers should include a user dialogue that explicitly forces users to define if node labels shall be interpreted as node or branch labels, prior to tree visualization.

Lnetwork: an efficient and effective method for constructing phylogenetic networks

An improved Cass algorithm is introduced, Lnetwork, which can construct a phylogenetic network for a given set of clusters and is shown to be significantly faster than Cass and effectively weakens the influence of input data order.

Comparison of Tree-Child Phylogenetic Networks

An injective representation of these networks as multisets of vectors of natural numbers, their path multiplicity vectors are provided, and this representation is used to define a distance on this class that extends the well-known Robinson-Foulds distance for phylogenetic trees and to give an alignment method for pairs of networks in this class.
