UNIX-style phylogenetic analyses on trees and sequences


phyx provides a convenient, lightweight and inclusive toolkit consisting of programs spanning the wide breadth of programs utilized by researchers performing phylogenomic analyses. Modeled after Unix/GNU/Linux command line tools, individual programs perform a single task and operate on standard I/O streams. A result of this stream-centric approach is that, for most programs, only a single sequence or tree is in memory at any moment. Thus, large datasets can be processed with minimal memory requirements. phyx’s ever-growing complement of programs consists of over 35 programs focused on exploring, manipulating, analyzing and simulating phylogenetic objects (alignments, trees and MCMC logs). As with standard Unix command line tools, these programs can be piped (together with non-phyx tools), allowing the easy construction of efficient analytical pipelines.
