          an application for phylogenetic tree drawing 
          version 0.7d, beta
          October 1997

Phylodendron is an application for drawing phylogenetic trees, used in
evolutionary biology. It will read tree data in New Hampshire (Newick)
format, then display graphical views of the phylogenetic tree.  Various
options allow you to modify, adorn and edit the tree.   Standard
application functions to save, print, edit and manage preferences are
included.   This program will not estimate nor produce the tree data. 
For that, software such as Phylip, Clustal W, and others may be used.
Phylodendron is available at  


Phylodendron is written as a Java application.   This means that it will
run on most personal computers and workstations as a standard program. 
This application is an enhancement of the Mac Hypercard program "Tree
Draw Deck" released by the author in 1990.

Please read the installation instructions included in
phylodendron-doc.html.  You may need to install a java runtime system 
for your computer.

Java versions of other molecular biology applications built on
the same framework are available at iubio:/molbio/java/apps/
   SeqPup - a biological sequence editor and analysis program
   loopDloop - an RNA secondary structure display editor
   FlyNapp - a FlyBase Drosophila database network application

Developers will find the source code in the iubio:/molbio/java/source/
folder. These files are not needed for running the program.
