Phylogeny.IO allows you to view,
annote and share phylogenies

You can zoom and pan around the tree using your trackpad or mouse.

  • Double-clicking on a leaf centers the image there.
  • The selected node also remains the frame of reference when sliders or other geometries are adjusted. So, selecting one will allow you to remain in the same place as the tree is re-drawn.
  • Double-clicking on a node collapses or expands a clade.
  • Hovering over a node displays associated information.

Sliders control the geometry of the tree

You can ajust them dynamically to change the relative length of the branches and the spacing between them.

Your tree, your way, via the toolbar

  • Many options for changing the appearance of lines, nodes and text
  • Select brances, clades or individual taxa
  • Phylograms or cladograms can be displayed in linear or circular views.
  • The shape and color of nodes and branches can be set manually
  • The menu can be collapsed by clicking a button
  • Nodes can be rotated either manually, or automatically
  • Parameter ranges can be displayed using node bars
  • A floating scale bar can be displayed

Anotating nodes

Wealth of data for every node

  • Text and an image can be added to every node under Misc menu.
  • Clicking on an annotated node dynamically brings up associate annotation.

Share interactive trees with others

Once a tree has been composed in the app, it can be shared with others inside any web page. For instance, here is a view of the example tree, which can be loaded in the main page, drawn as a circular phylogram and centered on the root.
