New publication: Fitchi: Haplotype genealogy graphs based on the Fitch algorithm

Michael Matschiner in Bioinformatics


In population genetics and phylogeography, haplotype genealogy graphs are important tools for the visualisation of population structure based on sequence data. In this type of graph, node sizes are often drawn in proportion to haplotype frequencies and edge lengths represent the minimum number of mutations separating adjacent nodes. I here present Fitchi, a new program that produces publication-ready haplotype genealogy graphs based on the Fitch algorithm.
