perl scripts for
phylogenetic analyses


Welcome to!

This web page is a very small collection of PERL scripts that I use in phylogenetic analyses of molecular data at the Natural History Museum Stuttgart (SMNS). The focus of my research is on the higher phylogeny of Lepidoptera (Assembling the Tree of Life Lepidoptera - "LepTree"), as well as on relationships between orders of Hexapoda and between classes of Arthropoda. This site serves primarily as an updated repository of my scripts (see left-hand menu), for some of which I provide a web service to facilitate convenient testing and use by others. I will expand this collection as time permits.
