PADRE

PADRE: Package for Analyzing and Displaying Reticulate Evolution. PADRE is a Java software package allowing the computation and graphical representation of reticulate networks from (a collection of) multi-labeled trees. If a collection of trees are loaded, the software first performs a consensus from which a collection of consensus trees are constructed. Finally, one of the consensus trees can be used to construct a reticulate network. In case a single tree is loaded, the consensus stage is skipped and the reticulate network is constructed directly from that tree. A range of user specified options are provided for both the consensus and network construction methods.
