Phylomatic

Version 3. This form sends data to the underlying web-service. To call the service directly, either GET or POST (for sending large trees) the paramenters (named exactly as on this form, requirement as per italics) to http://phylodiversity.net/phylomatic/pmws. This is a new tool (2012-08-23), so please let me know if it is not working, or if you have comments. Thanks to the NESCent PhyloTastic! hackathon for impetus and encouragement for upgrading.


tree = Mandatory option. Paste in your megatree here (<100kB)

treeuri = Mandatory option. URL of a tree online (<20MB)
  or  
storedtree = Mandatory option. Locally stored tree-of-trees megatrees, in newick format

method = convert Mandatory. Convert an input format to an output format

 
method = phylomatic Mandatory. Graft your taxa into the megatree, and then prune the megatree to just your taxa
taxa = Dependent mandatory option. Slash-delimited node paths, with returns between each taxon (see phylomatic documentation, or sample). Please note: at the moment, using internal names (e.g. genera) in the megatree as terminal names in your input list will cause the system to hang; please use terminal 'dummy species,' even if your goal is a genus or family tree.
