RAxML-Light: a tool for computing terabyte phylogenies

  title={RAxML-Light: a tool for computing terabyte phylogenies},
  author={Alexandros Stamatakis and Andre J. Aberer and Christian Goll and Stephen A. Smith and Simon A. Berger and Fernando Izquierdo-Carrasco},
MOTIVATION Due to advances in molecular sequencing and the increasingly rapid collection of molecular data, the field of phyloinformatics is transforming into a computational science. Therefore, new tools are required that can be deployed in supercomputing environments and that scale to hundreds or thousands of cores. RESULTS We describe RAxML-Light, a tool for large-scale phylogenetic inference on supercomputers under maximum likelihood. It implements a light-weight checkpointing mechanism… CONTINUE READING
