Counts the minimum number of extra lineages required to reconcile a list of gene trees within the branches of a phylogenetic network. The species network and gene trees must be specified in the Rich Newick Format.

The input gene trees can be gene tree distributions inferred from Bayesian methods like MrBayes. 



The name of the network.


gene_tree_ident1 [, gene_tree_ident2...]

Comma delimited list of gene tree identifiers. See details.


-m ac or mulSpecify the algorithm used for computation (see reference). The default value is ac.optional

-a taxa map

Gene tree / species tree taxa association.


-b thresholdSpecifies gene trees bootstrap threshold. Edges in the gene trees that have support lower than threshold will be contracted.optional


Optional file destination for command output.


By default, it is assumed that only one individual is sampled per species in gene trees. However, the option [-a taxa map] allows multiple alleles to be sampled.

The -m option is used to specify the algorithm for computation, where mul stands for the algorithm based on MUL-trees (Yu Et. Al, under review) and ac stands for the algorithm based on ancestral configurations (Yu and Nakhleh, under review). They produce exactly the same result, but the latter one is more efficiently in general cases.
