Problem :

When you are working with different programs for phylogenetic research, you may
have the problem that some programs use the complete species names
(Treeconw), other will use the first 30 characters (Clustalw), and some will
only use the first 10 characters (programs that work with Phylip files like
Puzzle, fastDNAml, ...). For the final result, everybody wants a tree with
complete names, but for most analyses, you have to shorten the names to 10
characters, and afterwards, you have to complete the names again. A lot of time
is wasted that way, not mentioning the boring job to do this... Cutoff does this
work for you... :-)
