New features in Phylemon 2.0 :
  • Web Design: It was completely re-designed.
  • Tools: Many tools have been upgraded.
  • Help: A complete wiki-help is available.
  • Performance improvements: Many libraries have been upgraded and several tools have been rewritten to speed up analysis.
  • Bandwidth usage: Server communication was improved. The bandwidth reduced almost 90%.
  • Bug fixes: Several small bugs have been detected and fixed.
  • Supported browsers: This release makes an intensive use of new web technologies and standards Supported browsers are: Chrome 7+, Firefox 3.5+, Safari 4+, Opera 10+ and Internet Explorer 8. Explorer 6 and 7 are no longer supported.

Phylemon 2.0 is the second release of the suite of web-tools for molecular evolution, phylogenetics, phylogenomics and hypotheses testing. It is conceived as a response to the increasing demand of molecular sequence analyses for experts and non-experts users.

Phylemon 2.0 has several features that differentiates from similar web resources:

  1. it offers an integrated environment enabling evolutionary analyses, format conversions, files storage and edition of results,
  2. it suggests the next possible analysis guiding the user through the web server, and
  3. users can define and save phylogenetic pipelines to be used with multiple genes (phylogenomics).

Phylemon 2.0 integrates a suite of 30 tools covering sequence alignment, trimming, tree reconstruction, visualization, manipulation of trees, and evolutionary hypotheses testing.

Phylemon has been extensively re-engineered and now it includes the use of Web 2.0 technology features, a new user interface with persistent sessions.
