Single-Gene Phylogenies and Gene Similarities

The tool infers a maximum-likelihood and a maximum-parsimony phylogenetic tree, including bootstrapping, from aligned or unaligned sequences. This service can also calculate exact pairwise 16S rRNA gene similarities for bacterial species delineation, including phylum-specific thresholds. The results are sent by e-mail, including publication-ready description text. The service supports amino-acid as well as nucleotide sequences.
