phylogram: dendrograms for evolutionary analysis

Author: Shaun Wilkinson

Evolutionary biologists are increasingly using R for building, editing and visualizing phylogenetic trees. The reproducible code-based workflow and comprehensive array of tools available in packages such as ape, phangorn and phytools make R an ideal platform for phylogenetic analysis. Yet the many different tree formats are not well integrated, as pointed out in a recent post

To better integrate the phylo and dendrogram object types, and hence increase the options available for both camps, we developed the phylogram package, which is now a part of the rOpenSci project. This small package features a handful of functions for tree conversion, importing and exporting trees as parenthetic text, and manipulating dendrograms for phylogenetic applications.
