A web application to visualise and compare phylogenetic trees side-by-side. Its distinctive features are: highlighting of similarities and differences between two trees, automatic identification of the best matching rooting and leaf order, scalability to very large trees, high usability, multiplatform support via standard HTML5 implementation, and possibility to store and share visualisations. Phylo.io can easily be embedded in other web servers.
