The University of Arizona’s Tree of Life Web Project organizes information about the biological taxa on the model of the tree of life itself. This creates intuitive and informative pathways for browsing. The Project has a well-articulated protocol for checking on the quality of information published on the site, which is evaluated a number of times as it is added to the site. This paper is intended to be an entreé to the site for teachers at all levels and the general public.

Deformity Index: A semi-reference quality metric of phylogenetic trees based on their clades
This paper introduces a scoring function, called the Deformity Index, to measure the correctness of a tree based on the biological knowledge of the clades, and shows that the proposed scoring function can overcome the limitations of the conventional methods of tree comparing by experimenting on different biological datasets.
