FastTree

Online

Constructs large phylogenies and estimates their reliability. FastTree uses nearest-neighbor interchanges (NNIs), the minimum-evolution criterion, minimum-evolution subtree-pruning-regrafting (SPRs) and maximumlikelihood NNIs to improve the tree. It uses heuristics to restrict the search for better trees and estimates a rate of evolution for each site. For large alignments, FastTree is 100-1,000 times faster than PhyML 3.0 or RAxML 7.
