I’ve been working on a Julia package for working with phylogenetic trees for the last month or so. This package is called PhyloTrees.jl. I’ve made a small introduction to its use in an IJulia notebook, check it out here, and let me know what you think of the interface!
PhyloTrees.jl will primarily be used for the simulation of genetic sequence data from defined phylogenetic trees. Additional features including inference of phylogenetic trees, and further input/output options are planned for the near future. Check it out if you are a Julia user interested in bioinformatics!
