sequence analysis, PSODA, open source
PSODA is an open source (GPL v2) sequence analysis package that implements sequence alignment using biochemical properties, phylogeny search with parsimony or maximum likelihood criteria and selection detection using biochemical properties (TreeSAAP ). PSODA is compatible with PAUP and the search algorithms are competitive with those in PAUP. PSODA also adds a basic scripting language to the PAUP block, making it possible to easily create advanced meta-searches. Because PSODA is open-source, we have also been able to easily add in advanced search techniques and characterize the benefits of various optimizations. PSODA is available for Macintosh OS X, Windows, and Linux.
