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...
TreeGraph 2 is a user friendly and widely used tree editor with the main focus on processing, visualizing and comparing phylogenetic trees carrying numerous annotations. Since its initial publication a number of features have been added. The ability to import and visualize probabilities for ancestral character states (as reconstructed by software p...
