Abstract : Motivation
Gene and species tree reconciliation methods are used to interpret gene trees, root them and correct uncertainties that are due to scarcity of signal in multiple sequence alignments. So far, reconciliation tools have not been integrated in standard phylogenetic software and they either lack performance on certain functions, or usability for biologists.
We present Treerecs, a phylogenetic software based on duplication-loss reconciliation. Treerecs is simple to install and to use. It is fast and versatile, has a graphic output, and can be used along with methods for phylogenetic inference on multiple alignments like PLL and Seaview.
Treerecs is open-source. Its source code (C ++, AGPLv3) and manuals are available from
