Evolutionary relationships among organisms are depicted by a binary tree. However, not all species follow the paradigm of vertical inheritance of genes and thus, estimation of phylogenetic networks becomes necessary. PhyloNetworks is the first Julia package for the inference, manipulation, visualization, and use of phylogenetic networks.
The package documentation has a full tutorial including upstream analyses, network estimation, bootstrap analysis, and downstream analyses for trait evolution.
I am an assistant professor at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery and the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Originally from Mexico City, I did my Undergraduate degrees in Actuarial Sciences and Applied Mathematics at ITAM. Then, I did a MA in Mathematics and a PhD in Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, running, biking, climbing and yoga!
