DensiTree -- Phylogenetic Tree Comparison software

What you can do:
Analyze phylogenetic trees.
  • DensiTree is a tool that helps navigating sets of trees.
  • The main idea behind it is to draw all trees in the set transparently.
  • Areas where a lot of the trees agree in topology and branch lengths show up as highly colored areas, while areas with little agreement show up as webs.
  • This makes it possible to quickly get an impression of properties of the tree set such as well-supported clades, distribution of tMRCA and areas of topological uncertainty.
  • DensiTree provides a quick method for qualitative analysis of tree sets.
