DupliPHY and DupliPHY-ML1 are command line tools to determine the evolutionary history of gene families using weighted parsimony2 and maximum likelihood3. The tools accept a newick string species phylogeny and a list of gene family sizes. DuipliPHY allows the user to also provide a weight matrix specifying the costs of gene gain and loss, while DupliPHY-ML allows the user to select between two different models of gene gain and loss.
The tools will output the ancestral family sizes for each gene family in a tab delimited format. The tool can be applied to single gene families or run for whole genomic studies.
DupliPHY and DupliPHY-ML are available as executable jar files and should run on any operating system.
The source code is available for DupliPHY. The source code for DupliPHY-ML is available on request.
