Online

A freely available software package for comparative and evolutionary genomics. It consists of about half a dozen major programs, plus more than a dozen utilities for manipulating sequence alignments, phylogenetic trees, and genomic annotations. For the most part, PHAST focuses on two kinds of applications: the identification of novel functional elements, including protein-coding exons and evolutionarily conserved sequences; and statistical phylogenetic modeling, including estimation of model parameters, detection of signatures of selection, and reconstruction of ancestral sequences.
