Dear All,

TREEFINDER has now an utility to compute rate profiles along sequence 
alignments, which might be useful if one is investigating selective 
forces on DNA sequences.

Another new tool can calibrate phylogenetic trees in time using Michael 
J. Sanderson's nonparametric rate smoothing method (NPRS). It outputs a 
chronogram and also a ratogram with estimates of absolute evolutionary 

Finally, the new version comes with a more informative documentation on 
the TL programming interface.

The new version is available at   and runs on 
Windows, Linux and MacOS X.

For those who have not yet heard of TRREFINDER: This is a very fast 
maximum likelihood phylogeny program with a grapic frontend and a 
programming interface. Please have a look at the website for more 

By the way - I am looking for sponsors or a new job.
