Sketch rooted phylogenetic trees and networks

PhyloSketch is an interactive program for sketching rooted phylogenetic trees and networks. The program reports on some of mathematical properties of the network. The program can import and export rooted phylogenetic trees or networks in (extended) Newick format. The program was written by Daniel Huson, with Mike Steel.

PhyloSketch is written in Java (12) and uses JavaFX. 

We plan to make PhyloSketch open source and will host the source on GitHub.

A paper describing the underlying algorithms is in preparation.
