This command implements functions to compute the trees, tripartitions or clusters contained in a phylogenetic network. Please note that the clusters and tripartitions returned by this tool will not contain trivial ones, that is, clusters and tripartitions for the network’s root and leaves. The networks must be specified in the Rich Newick Format.
