Bio::Phylo

An object-oriented toolkit for analyzing and manipulating phyloinformatic data.

DESCRIPTION

Phylogenetics is the branch of evolutionary biology that deals with reconstructing and analyzing the tree of life. This distribution provides objects and methods to aid in handling and analyzing phylogenetic data.

COMPATIBILITY

Bio::Phylo installs without problems on most popular, current platforms (Win32, OSX, Linux, Solaris, IRIX, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD), on Perl versions >= 5.8.0

For a list of automated test results for the latest release number visit:

Currently, the build status at Travis for the head revision is:

INSTALLATION

Bio::Phylo has no dependencies for its core install. However, some additional functionality will not work (e.g. XML parsing) until the CPAN module that enables it has been installed (e.g. XML::Twig). You can install these at a later date if and when need arises. For example, when you get an error message at runtime that alerts you to a missing dependency. If any of such additional CPAN modules are found to be missing at installation time, a warning will be emitted, but installation and unit testing can continue.

To install the Bio::Phylo distribution itself, run the following commands:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test # Optional, runs unit tests, which should pass
make install

(For platform specific information on what 'make' command to use, check "perl -V:make". On Windows this usually returns "make='nmake';", which means you'll need the free 'nmake' utility)
