PhyloDraw is a unified viewing tool for phylogenetic trees. PhyloDraw supports various kinds of multi-alignment formats (Dialign2, Clustal-W, Phylip format, NEXUS, MEGA, and pairwise distance matrix) and visualizes various kinds of tree diagrams, e.g. rectangular cladogram, slanted cladogram, phylogram, unrooted tree, and radial tree. By using several control parameters, users can easily and interactively manipulate the shape of phylogenetic trees. This program can export the final tree layout to BMP (bitmap image format) and PostScript.
