Phylogenetic inference from raw reads and Read2Tree with David Dylus (#68)
August 28, 2023
In this episode, David Dylus talks about Read2Tree, a tool that builds alignment matrices and phylogenetic trees from raw sequencing reads. By leveraging the database of orthologous genes called OMA, Read2Tree bypasses traditional, time-consuming steps such as genome assembly, annotation and all-versus-all sequence comparisons.
