ETE (Environment for Tree Exploration is a Python programming toolkit that assists in the automated manipulation, analysis and visualization of phylogenetic trees. Clustering trees or any other tree-like data structure are also supported.
ETE is currently developed as a tool for researchers working in phylogenetics and genomics. ETE provides specialized tools to reconstruct, compare and visualize phylogenetic trees. If you use ETE for a published work, please cite:
