PhyloCompare-ASP is an ASP-based approach to compare phylogenies. Phylogenies are compared and their similarity is determined with the help of distance measures among phylogenies (for a detailed discussion see [1]). We developed an online tool which can perform some of the features of PhyloCompare-ASP.

The input

The user provides a set of phylogenies (in Newick format) to PhyloCompare-ASP and selects one of the built-in distance measures. In addition, the user may (optional) set the number of similar/diverse phylogenies to-be-computed (n) and the maximum/minimum distance among them (k).

The output

The output of PhyloCompare-ASP is the distance matrix of the input phylogenies. If the user provides the n value then the tool outputs n most similar/diverse phylogenies. If the user provides n and k values then the tool outputs n-k similar/diverse phylogenies.
