PhyInformR: Rapid Calculation of Phylogenetic Information Content

Enables rapid calculation of phylogenetic information content using the latest advances in phylogenetic informativeness based theory. These advances include modifications that incorporate uneven branch lengths and any model of nucleotide substitution to provide assessments of the phylogenetic utility of any given dataset or dataset partition. Also provides new tools for data visualization and routines optimized for rapid statistical calculations, including approaches making use of Bayesian posterior distributions and parallel processing. Users can apply these approaches toward screening datasets for phylogenetic/genomic information content.
