TREE-PUZZLE provides a means to analyze and reconstruct evolutionary relationships and trees based on quartets, i.e., groups of four sequences. Basic Protocol 1 explains how to reconstruct trees based on the maximum-likelihood principle and quartet puzzling. Basic Protocol 2 discusses likelihood mapping, a method to visualize phylogenetic content in a multiple sequence alignment. Basic Protocol 3 explains how to compare tree topologies using different tests.
