There has been some recent discussion about phylogenetic software
and multiple sequence alignment packages. There is a growing collection

e.g. the MEGA package), for those who would like an overview of what there
To access this collection, point your gopher Client at:
--> 4. Computational Molecular Biology- programs, documents, help/
--> 3. Phylogenetic analysis- programs, help, etc./
for the summary document, then select:
--> 1. Documents/
--> 2. Summary of Programs for Phylogenetic analysis.
If you want more information about gopher, just send me an email and I'll
try to point you in the right direction.
