DendroPy 3.12.0

A Python library for phylogenetics and phylogenetic computing: reading, writing, simulation, processing and manipulation of phylogenetic trees (phylogenies) and characters.

Package Documentation

Introduction

DendroPy is a Python library for phylogenetic computing. It provides classes and functions for the simulation, processing, and manipulation of phylogenetic trees and character matrices, and supports the reading and writing of phylogenetic data in a range of formats, such as NEXUS, NEWICK, NeXML, Phylip, FASTA, etc. Application scripts for performing some useful phylogenetic operations, such as data conversion and tree posterior distribution summarization, are also distributed and installed as part of the libary. DendroPy can thus function as a stand-alone library for phylogenetics, a component of more complex multi-library phyloinformatic pipelines, or as a scripting "glue" that assembles and drives such pipelines.

The primary home page for DendroPy, with detailed tutorials and documentation, is at:

Requirements and Installation

DendroPy runs under any version of Python 2 from 2.4 upwards (i.e., Python 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, etc.). At present, it does not run under Python 3.

If you have setuptools installed, you can install the latest public release of DendroPy directly from the Python Package Index by running:
