Package: wnpp

Owner: Charles Plessy <charles-debian-nospam@plessy.org>

  Package name    : phylowin
  Version         : 25.09.2006
  Upstream Author : Nicolas GALTIER <galtier@biomserv.univ-lyon1.fr> and Manolo GOUY

  Description     : Graphical interface for molecular phylogenetic inference

Phylo_win is a graphical colour interface for molecular phylogenetic
inference. It performs neighbor-joining, parsimony and maximum
likelihood methods and bootstrap with any of them. Many distances can be
used including Jukes & Cantor, Kimura, Tajima & Nei, HKY, Galtier & Gouy
(1995), LogDet for nucleotidic sequences, Poisson correction for protein
sequences, Ka and Ks for codon sequences. Species and sites to include
in the analysis are selected by mouse. Reconstructed trees can be drawn,
edited, printed, stored and evaluated according to numerous criteria.

One of the authors asked me if I could package Phylo_win for Debian.
After inspecting the sources, I figured out that this program uses
sources files from the Phylip program, which frobids its use for profit.
Therfore, Phylo_win will unfortunately have to be distributed in
"non-free", oustide of Debian. I will nevertheless contact the author(s)
of the derived source files and ask if they are willing to give an
exemption for Phylo_win.

Phylo_win will depend on Vibrant (ncbi-tools6) and lesstif.
