Answers to your “Phylogenetic Tree” webinar questions
We recently hosted a webinar about phylogenetic tree creation in MegAlign Pro. The record size of the audience meant Dr. Brian Walsh did not have enough time to answer everyone’s questions during the webinar itself. Therefore, we have posted a selection of additional audience questions and their answers in our latest blog post. Main topics include: how to perform a multiple alignment in MegAlign Pro, how to handle gaps in the alignment, new ways to display distance metrics, and best practices for building and optimizing phylogenetic trees.
