phyx performs phylogenetics analyses on trees and sequences. See installation instructions for Linux and Mac including any dependencies on the wiki here or below. A list of the current programs with examples can be found here.

Some of the sequence comparison operations use the very nice edlib library. These are reported in this publication: Martin Šošić, Mile Šikić; Edlib: a C/C ++ library for fast, exact sequence alignment using edit distance. Bioinformatics 2017 btw753. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btw753.

Update 31 May 2018

If you have been using phyx and things are not working after a recent pull, this is because of a change in configuration. Please do the following in the src directory to remedy the situation:

make distclean
autoreconf -fi
./configure
make
sudo make install

Installation instructions

phyx requires a few dependencies. Since installation of these dependencies differs on Linux vs. Mac OSX, we've separated the instructions below.

Mac install

Mac has become increasingly difficult to support at the command line with changes every version on location and standards for compilation tools. First, distribution of compiled programs is very difficult. Furthermore, Mac now defaults to clang as a C/C++ compiler, which does not support OpenMP. For Mac OSX 10.12, we have found that you can install with clang using the simple instructions and [homebrew] (http://brew.sh/) or using a fresh installation of gcc from here. Instructions for both are below (don't use both, choose one, probably the simple one). For simple instructions click here, and for advanced instructions click here.

Binary install with Homebrew

  1. Install the Homebrew package manager:

     /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
    
  2. Install the Brewsci phyx package:

     brew install brewsci/bio/phyx
    

Build from source with Homebrew

  1. Install the Homebrew package manager:

     /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
    
  2. Install dependencies from homebrew:

     brew install git cmake nlopt armadillo
    
  3. On to phyx. first, clone the repository (if you haven't already):

     git clone https://github.com/FePhyFoFum/phyx.git
    
  4. Install phyx

     cd phyx/src
     ./configure
     make
     python run_tests.py
    

If you want to install it so it is available anywhere in your system, do:

    sudo make install

Install with HPC GCC (advanced instructions)

  1. Install gcc and gfortran. Download gcc-6.2-bin.tar.gz or more recent from http://hpc.sourceforge.net/. Install with:

     sudo tar -xvf gcc-6.2-bin.tar -C /
    
  2. Install autoconf from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/. Get autoconf-latest.tar.gz, then:

     tar -xzf autoconf-latest.tar.gz
     cd autoconf-2.69
     ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/autoconf-2.69
     make
     sudo make install
     ln -s autoconf-2.69 /usr/local/autoconf
    
  3. On to phyx. first, clone the repository (if you haven't already):

     git clone https://github.com/FePhyFoFum/phyx.git
    
  4. Install cmake and install Armadillo. Get cmake from https://cmake.org/download/. I got https://cmake.org/files/v3.6/cmake-3.6.2-Darwin-x86_64.tar.gz. Get armadillo from the deps directory or http://arma.sourceforge.net/download.html, get the stable one. Untar it. Double click the Cmake.app. Click "Browse source..." and choose the armadillo folder that was created after untaring. Click "Browse build..." and choose the same folder as browse source. Click "Configure" and then click "Generate". Go to the terminal and browse to that armadillo folder and type:

     make
     sudo make install
    
  5. Install nlopt. Get armadillo from the deps directory or go to http://ab-initio.mit.edu/wiki/index.php/NLopt#Download_and_installation and download the latest (probably nlopt-2.4.2.tar.gz). Untar and browse in the terminal to that directory:

     ./configure --without-octave --without-matlab
     make
     sudo make install
    
  6. Compile phyx. Now you can go to the src directory of phyx and type:

     ./configure
     make
     python run_tests.py
     sudo make install
    

and all the programs should compile without issue.

Linux install

These instructions work for most ubuntu versions as well as debian.

  1. Install general dependencies:

     sudo apt-get install git autotools-dev autoconf automake cmake libtool liblapack-dev libatlas-cpp-0.6-dev libnlopt-dev libnlopt0
    
  2. Clone the phyx repo (if you haven't already):

     git clone https://github.com/FePhyFoFum/phyx.git
    
  3. Install armadillo dependency

Note: it is possible to get from apt-get, but need version >= 5.2:

    sudo apt-get install libarmadillo-dev

On debian it was necessary to use backports:

    sudo apt-get -t jessie-backports install libarmadillo-dev

If that is not possible, compile the provided code:

    cd phyx/deps
    tar -xvzf armadillo-7.400.2.tgz
    cd armadillo-7.400.2
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
  1. Finally, install phyx:

     cd phyx/src
     ./configure
     make
     python run_tests.py
    

If you want to install it so it is available anywhere in your system, do:

    sudo make install
