Actual Science…

26 Sep Actual Science…

So when I started writing this blog I thought I would use it to outline some of the things I was working on as I went along. Not real projects, which I will write up and publish, but side projects and how I got them to work (or otherwise). Unfortunately there hasn’t been much of that, lots of reviews and comment instead. Hopefully I am going to change that now. 

Last April I posted about FastTree, the rapid NJ application that seems to be able to handle approx 40,000 OTUs. The authors say 

“FastTree inferred a phylogeny for an alignment of 39,092 proteins, including support values, in half an hour on a desktop PC”.

I actually compiled and started using it back in April, but got swamped by teaching and theses and stuff and never posted anything more. My next few posts are going to be about getting FastTree to work and how it copes with some of my datasets. Alternatively as the new crop of undergraduates arrive next week there may be a long silence instead.
