Implements a gene tree generation method called ProfileNJ. RefineTree takes a gene tree with statistical supports on its branches, and corrects its weakly supported parts by using a combination of information from a species tree and a distance matrix. Synteny information and orthology relations have also been used as correction criteria. The tree offer to the user the possibility to get Ensembl information of a particular gene.
