Colleagues,

I have a large (98 taxa, 200 bp) NEXUS file that I have tried to analyse
with PAUP.  Needless to say, it is slow.  I have PHYLIP for UNIX on a new
SPARC station and wish to try it that way - does anyone have a conversion
utility for converting NEXUS files to PHYLIP infiles?  Also, what other
parsimony programs are available for UNIX systems?  I know a UNIX version
of PAUP is forthcoming, but is there anything else I could try in the
meantime.  Much thanks!

Andrew
