A package to reconstruct species tree. MixTreEM uses a probabilistic generative mixture model to reconstruct a set of k-candidate species trees given a set of n monocopy gene families. In the first phase, a set of probable species trees are inferred given gene family data. In the second phase, each of the species tree, along with the gene families, is fed into DLRS (Duplication, Loss, Rate and Sequence) model, ultimately giving us the best species tree.
