IGNet: Constructing Rooted Phylogenetic Networks Based on Incompatible Graphs
Phylogenetic networks are used in biology to describe reticulate or non-treelike evolution events. Thus, constructing phylogenetic networks is essential for the research on the evolution of species. IGNet is a web-based server for on-line construction of rooted phylogenetic networks from rooted phylogenetic trees based on an incompatible graph. Two methods, Open image in new window and BIMLR, were introduced and implemented in IGNet to help users construct rooted phylogenetic networks rapidly and efficiently. Besides the on-line computation service, the IGNet also provides downloadable Java programs of Open image in new window and BIMLR for off-line construction of rooted phylogenetic networks. IGNet is availability from http://bioinformatics.imu.edu.cn.
