A new version of ART (an ancestral reconstruction tool) is available for release. This software package is a labor of love, and lately consumes my “spare” time. I have big plans for ART (including a web interface and visualization tools), but in the meantime this project is stable and functional.
What does ART do?
- ART wraps CodeML into an easier-to-use and error-safe tool.
- ART calculates the maximum a posteriori (MAP) ancestor. The MAP concept is a new statistical practice currently being developed in Joe Thornton’s lab.
- ART manages your phylogenetic reconstruction projects in a SQL database.
