Exascale Maximum Likelihood (ExaML) code for phylogenetic inference using MPI.
-This code implements the popular RAxML search algorithm for maximum likelihood based inference of phylogenetic trees.
-It uses a radically new MPI parallelization approach that yields improved parallel efficiency, in particular on
-partitioned multi-gene or whole-genome datasets.

+It uses a radically new MPI parallelization approach that yields improved parallel efficiency,
+in particular on partitioned multi-gene or whole-genome datasets.
It is up to 4 times faster than RAxML-Light [1].
+As RAxML-Light, ExaML also implements checkpointing, SSE3, AVX vectorization and
+memory saving techniques.
