TOPD description

TOPD allows to evaluate similarities and differences between phylogenetic trees. It implements several algorithms including the Disagree method that returns the taxa, that disagree between two trees and the Nodal method that compares two trees using nodal information. It also includes partition method, Triplets and Quartets to compare phylogenetic trees. It also allows the comparison of trees that contain both orthologs and paralogs. Each option is also complemented with a randomization analysis to test the null hypothesis that the similarity between two trees is not better than chance expectation.
