Response to K. Bhat's request

K. Bhat asked about programs to "draw" (I take it that means to estimate)
the phylogeny of a group of sequences from primary sequence data.

My free program package PHYLIP is available (version 3.2 with 3.3 to come
soon) in Pascal and also in DOS executables.  I have sent distribution
information to Bhat directly as it has already appeared here.

However I do not have an alignment program in PHYLIP.  People with this
sort of data may also want to try out Jotun Hein's new program TreeAlign
which is available in the EMBL and Houston software servers.  It aligns
and makes trees at the same time.  However it is too big to run under

There are other programs as well but these come to mind ;-)
