kmix

 

Function

Mixed parsimony algorithm using mix

Description

kmix is mixed parsimony algorithm utilizing "mix" methods provided in PHYLIP web service.

Following block is a quotation from fmix included in PHYLIPNEW package. Estimates phylogenies by some parsimony methods for discrete character data with two states (0 and 1). Allows use of the Wagner parsimony method, the Camin-Sokal parsimony method, or arbitrary mixtures of these. Also reconstructs ancestral states and allows weighting of characters (does not 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/mix.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. kmixis thus an interface of "runMix" 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.
