Are there any systematists/cladists out there who use the cladistic
program DADA to create data matrices? If so, I would greatly appreciate
recieving a text file of a data matrix created in DADA.
I'm currently building a program which creates an interactive key based
on data matrices used in cladistic analysis. So far, I hava samples of
a nexus file (used with MacClade), and an xread file which was created
in Tree Gardner. I understand that DADA creates a matrix in xread
format, but that the character and state data (the text/names for the
characters and states which are ignored by the tree-finder) are in a
different format in DADA files.
I would certainly acknowledge the contribution in any documentation
resulting from this project.
Thanks in advance - Cynthia
