Re: What sort of things are useful for genetic distance calculations 

Does your program produce "trees" as an endpoint? if so
then you should make sure you can export newhampshire style
trees which means that funky programs such as treetool can
use it, and more mundane programs like PairWise can also
use them...

And do you not consider protein sequences (in particular protein
alignments) for distance measures?
