Several packages have been developed to allow R-users to work with phylogenetic trees, something that most biologists will need to do at some point in their careers. The most basic is the ape package, which stands for Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution. This chapter gives some of the basics of ...

Cover for Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data.

The goal of phylogenetics is to construct relationships that are true representations of the evolutionary history of a group of organisms or genes. The history inferred from phylogenetic analysis is usually depicted as branching in tree-like diagrams or networks. In nematology, phylogenetic studies ...
