How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

DNA barcoding aids in rapidly identifying specimens in various contexts by comparing short stretches of DNA to a reference database. Barcoding initiatives generate large reference databases of carefully curated high‐quality sequences to maximize identification success. BarKeeper provides a flexible tool for barcoding initiatives and in the context...

The lifestyle of parasitic plants is associated with peculiar morphological, genetic, and physiological adaptations that existing online plant-specific resources fail to adequately represent. Here, we introduce the Web Application for the Research of Parasitic Plants (WARPP) as an online resource dedicated to advancing research and development of p...

Background: Today a variety of phylogenetic file formats exists, some of which are well-established but limited in their data model, while other more recently introduced ones offer advanced features for metadata representation. Although most currently available software only supports the classical formats with a limited metadata model, it would be...

Phylogenetics, phylogenomics and related fields have become data-intensive due to increasingly cheaper high-throughput sequencing technologies, the digitization of large biological collections or data contributions from citizen science. An increasing number of computationally accessible methods for analyses that produce derived data, like phylogene...

In philosophy ontology is defined as the study of the nature and relations of being. Information sciences apply this concept to create naming conventions describing types, properties and interrelationships of certain entities. Ontologies aim to limit complexity and organize information. In phylogenetics they allow scientists to provide semantic inf...

TreeGraph 2 is a user friendly tree editor with the main focus on processing, visualizing and comparing phylogenetic trees carrying numerous annotations. Here, new features added since its initial publication in 2010 are presented. The ability to import and visualize probabilities for ancestral character states (e.g. by pie charts attached to inter...

Today a variety of alignment and tree file formats exist, some of which well-established but limited in their data model, others more recently proposed offer advanced future-orientated features for metadata representation. Most phylogenetic and other bioinformatic software currently only supports one or few different formats, while supporting many...

JPhyloIO is Java library for reading and writing phylogenetic (alignment and tree) file formats. It's aim is to allow developers of bioinformatical applications access to various formats using a single interface, while being independent of the concrete application data model. The library supports event based I/O of NeXML, Nexus, PhyloXML, FASTA, Newick, Phylip, Extended Phylip, MEGA, PDE and XTG, including all metadata modeled by these formats. This project keeps you up to date on the development of JPhyloIO, new releases and publications. The documentation, including full JavaDocs and multiple example applications showing how to use JPhyloIO are available here: http://bioinfweb.info/JPhyloIO/Documentation. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask one in this project. The project is open source under GNU LGPL. Suggestions and contributions (e.g. via GitHub) are always welcome. http://bioinfweb.info/JPhyloIO/ https://twitter.com/bioinfweb https://github.com/bioinfweb/JPhyloIO Legal notice: http://bioinfweb.info/JPhyloIO/About Privacy Policy: http://bioinfweb.info/Privacy
Project
LibrAlign is a Java library providing flexible and powerful GUI components for displaying and editing multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) and attached raw and metadata. It supports creating both Swing and SWT GUIs (using http://bioinfweb.info/TIC/) and the alignment formats FASTA, Phylip, Nexus, NeXML, MEGA and PDE. All components are easily extendable by application or third-party developers. The documentation and JavaDocs are available here: http://bioinfweb.info/LibrAlign/Documentation.

Project
This project keeps you up to date on the further development of TreeGraph 2, new releases and features. TreeGraph 2 is an easy to use editor for phylogenetic trees that offers a variety of editing and formatting options. You can interactively compare and combine trees from different (conflicting) analyses and attach an unlimited number of numerical or textual annotations to every node and branch. Newick, Nexus, NeXML, PhyloXML, tables and MrBayes data are supported for I/O. A complete documentation and tutorials are available here: http://treegraph.bioinfweb.info/Help.
