can  somebody help me with PHYLIP? I want to draw a distance tree for 32
proteins and combine it with bootstrapping. I run the following
programs: SEQBOOT (makes eg 100 bootstrapts) PROTDIST (calculates the
distance for each of the 100 datasets) FITCH (constructs trees from the
distances) CONSENSE (finds the best tree) and DRAWTREE. The problem I
have is that the treefile generated by CONSENSE does not give distance
values but rather probability values. The result is thus qualitatively
different from 

How can I get a tree with distances AND bootstrap values?
