Software and Algorithms

  • RAF-Analyser - a web application for analysing Reflexively Autocatalytic Food-generated sets.

  • HybridNumber (ZIP, 119 KB), a Perl script for an exact calculation of the minimum number of hybridization events to explain two rooted binary phylogenetic trees on the same taxa set.
  • sim_tree (TAR, 190 KB) - Does Random Tree Puzzle produce Yule-Harding trees in the many-taxon limit? (Sha Zhu and Mike Steel, Mathematical Biosciences). This software is used to simulate tree topologies under the Yule process and the PDA process.
