is a Java program that uses as input different tree files and
computes their patristic distances. Patristic allows saving and
editing in different ways those distances. Patristic provides
different graphic views of the results as well as the possibility to
save them in the CSV format for building graphics using Excel.
- Patristic distances
are calculated from trees in many variant of the Newick format
(Compatible programs: PAUP, MEGA, Clustal, Phylip).
- Distance matrices can
also be imported from MEGA, PAUP, Phylip.
- Two matrices can be
plotted and some statistics such as the correlation coefficient are
- Plots can be saved in
different formats such as Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), GIF, JPG, PNG,
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)... thanks to the VectorGraphics
package of the FreeHEP Java library.
