Purpose: IQ-TREE is a fast and effective stochastic algorithm to infer phylogenetic trees by maximum likelihood. See Explanation for information about this web interface, and see IQ-TREE homepage for details about options.

Estimated by Maximum likelihood
Empirical, computed from alignment input
Empirical, specified in AA model (AA only)
Branch Support
Bootstrap Ultrafast         # of replicates         Create bootstrap trees file
standard         # of replicates
Single branch test SH-aLRT branch test         # of replicates
Approximate Bayes test
Tree search
Perturbation strength
# of unsuccessful iterations to stop
Reconstruct ancestral seqs
Min posterior probability (Threshold to determine the best ancestral state, empty=observed state frequency from input)
User-defined tree
(Enter a tree to see ancestral sequences along it. Otherwise, IQ-TREE computes ancestral sequences of the ML tree)
Root tree None     Generalized midpoint optimizationā€ƒ     Simple midpoint     Specify outgroups
