TreeGraph: automated drawing of complex tree figures using an extensible tree description format

Müller J, Müller KF

Research article (journal)


TREEGRAPH assists in producing complex ready-to-publish figures of phylogenetic trees. The TGF format used by the program automates formatting of several different statistical support value types (confidence estimates) per tree node. Moreover, internal text and graphical labels are automatically arranged at the nodes as are annotations for clades or groups of terminals. TREEGRAPH imports NEXUS trees and related file formats. Beyond common tree edit operations, simultaneous pruning of subtrees (simplification of the tree to higher order clades) and saving of subtrees is possible. TREEGRAPH exports to the standard vector graphics formats Scalable Vector Graphics and PostScript.
