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 www.treefinder.de 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.
