kdnapars

 

Function

DNA parsimony algorithm using dnapars

Description

kdnapars is dNA parsimony algorithm utilizing "dnapars" methods provided in PHYLIP web service.

Following block is a quotation from fdnapars included in PHYLIPNEW package. Estimates phylogenies by the parsimony method using nucleic acid sequences. Allows use the full IUB ambiguity codes, and estimates ancestral nucleotide states. Gaps treated as a fifth nucleotide state. It can also fo transversion parsimony. Can cope with multifurcations, reconstruct ancestral states, use 0/1 character weights, and infer branch lengths PHYLIP web service is provided by National University of Singapore. Original web-service is located at the following URL:

http://bioportal.bic.nus.edu.sg/phylip/dnapars.html

This tools is a subset of Keio Bioinformatics Web Service (KBWS) package, which contains interfaces to bioinformatics web services through a proxy server at Keio University. kdnaparsis thus an interface of "runDnapars" method included in KBWS SOAP service. This method can be alternatively accessed directly from programming languages as SOAP web service. Please refer to the KBWS online documentations http://www.g-language.org/kbws/ for more information.

DNA parsimony algorithm, version 3.57c


One most parsimonious tree found:




        +--Beta      
     +--3  
  +--2  +--Gamma     
  !  !  
--1  +-----Epsilon
