What Is a Phylogenetic Tree?

Phylogenetic tree (also phylogeny or evolutionary tree) is a diagram or tree showing the evolutionary relationships among various biological species or entities based upon similarities and differences in their physical or genetic characteristics.

How to Make a Phylogenetic Tree?

  • The first step is to align the two DNA sequences that you’re going to compare. Ensure that you’re comparing two genes (or other sequences).
  • The strategy is to find the alignment with the most matches and the fewest mismatches. Use Creately workspace to get all sequences to a table and compare.
  • Next step is to compare the sequences and group them together in a tree. Creately helps to easily connect and visualize the branches with intelligent connectivity features.
  • Calculate the differences between each pair of sequences once the tree is completed.
  • Export your phylogenetic tree in JPEG, SVG, PNG, or PDF formats or share with colleagues for real-time feedback collection.
