Helps expedite and facilitate the transformation of raw phenomic character data into discrete character matrices that can be used in most popular evolutionary inference programs. MatrixConverter facilitates the process of evaluating, scoring, and formatting raw phenomic data so that the data can be used for evolutionary inference.
