Created by researchers at the Universities of Auckland (New Zealand) and Oxford (UK), PAL (Phylogenetic Analysis Library) is a Java library intended for use in molecular evolution and phylogenetics. PAL currently consists of thirteen packages with "ready-to-use objects" for reading/writing sequence alignments, distance matrices, and trees; substitution models for nucleotides and amino acids; efficient maximum-likelihood estimation of pairwise distances and tree branch lengths; numerous statistical tests; and options for constructing neighbor-joining and UPGMA trees; among many other features. The program may be downloaded as a .tar.gz or .hqx file, but users who are only interested in accessing the library and not in programming may want simply to download a user front end; conditions for use and instructions are included on-site.
