To our users Please note that the HCV database site is no longer funded. We try to keep the database updated and the tools running, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee we can provide help for using this site. Data won't be manually curated either.
Purpose: To create a color-coded phylogenetic tree. See details below.
Details: This tool groups sequences based on sequence names, and draws a color-coded tree using up to 20 colors.
It is useful when you already have a tree and want to color its branches to depict particular groupings of sequences. For example, the Sample Input with default settings depicts the HIV-1 M-group reference phylogeny
color-coded by subtype.
