Software promises to redefine the tree of life as we know it

A new method to analyze genetic data, developed by two SIB Groups, shows that the relationships between living species, from bacteria to plants and animals, are different from previous estimates. Created by the group led by Nicolas Salamin and the Bioinformatics Core Facility at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) and SIB, the new software will change what we know about the tree of life. The study is published in the journal PNAS.
