MATLAB® (The MathWorks, Inc.) is a general-purpose technical computing language and development environment that is widely used in scientific and engineering applications. The Bioinformatics Toolbox for MATLAB is a library of functions that adds bioinformatics capabilities to the MATLAB environment. This article describes the functions in the Bioinformatics Toolbox and gives an example of how these can be used for phylogenetic analysis of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) sequence data.
