a phylogenetic tree
This web page will construct a phylogenetic tree of the species you
select below. It will use the protein sequences
of the protein hemoglobin from each of these organisms to construct the tree.
- Select the desired creatures from the lists below. The tree will not be very interesting unless you compare multiple species.
You must also choose one and only one outgroup organism so that
your tree will have a root. This is especially important for the
parsimony analysis. The outgroup organism should not be closely
related to the other organisms.
When you have made the selections you want, click the "calculate tree"
Your request will then be processed this may take
a while so please be patient.
- To select more than one in the same list, hold down the apple key (on macs);
the control key (on pcs); on the Suns, you just click.
- If you want to clear your selections and start over, click
the "Clear all selections" button.
