     Graphical Display of New Hampshire format trees on Macs.



NJplot is a simple to use and extremely useful program for displaying New
Hampshire format trees (nested parentheses; e.g. TREEFILE files from 
PHYLIP or the *.dnd, *.ph and *.phb files from Clustal W).  It displays
branch lengths and bootstrap information (if present) and allows the user
to swap branches and change the position of the root.  Trees can then
be saved in PICT format which are readable by most Macintosh graphics
packages.

I included an earlier version of NJplot with Clustal W 1.5; this had a minor
bug which sometimes clipped the left hand side of the trees.  This, revised
version is now included and is also available on its own.


NJplot can be retrieved by anonmyous ftp from:  ftp.ebi.ac.uk

Many thanks to Manolo Gouy, University of Lyon, France for making the
program available!!
