7.6.2.1. External tools

SATé breaks the tree topology down into subproblems during each round of analysis and realigns the data for each subset, merges the alignments into a full alignment and re-estimates the tree for full alignment. 

  1. ‘Aligner’ is used to select the multiple sequence alignment tool to produce the initial full alignment.
  2. ‘Merger’ is used to select the multiple sequence alignment tool to merge the alignments of subproblems into a bigger and final multiple sequence alignment.
  3. ‘Tree estimator’ uses RAxML for tree estimation with the chosen evolutionary ‘Model’.
