I wish to introduce the TOPD/FMTS software to evaluate similarities and differences between phylogenetic trees. TOPD/FMTS can compare trees with leaf-sets that either completely or partially overlap and can be also used to compare two trees, one or both of which are multigene family trees.
The version 1.0 of TOPD/FMTS implements the following methods to compare phylogenetic trees:
            - Split distance.
            - Nodal distance.
            - Disagree.
            - Taxa in common.
            - Quartets.
- Triplets.
Each option is also complemented with a randomisation analysis to test the null hypothesis that the similarity between two trees is not better than chance expectation.

TOPD/FMTS is freely available at: http://genomes.urv.cat/topd .
