POY

Phylogenetic Analysis of DNA and other data using dynamic homology

POY is a phylogenetic analysis program that supports multiple kinds of data (e.g. morphology, nucleotides, genes and gene regions, chromosomes, whole genomes, etc). POY is particular in that it can perform true sequence optimization and phylogeny inference simultaneously (i.e. input sequences need not to be prealigned). Insertions, deletions, and rearrangements, can then be included in the overall tree score (under Maximum Parsimony), or in the model (under Maximum Likelihood). A variety of heuristic algorithms have been developed for this purpose and are implemented in POY.

Ask questions about POY on the Mailing List.

The development of POY was sponsored in part by CIPRES.
