Hi all,

I've been searching with no luck for a tool to reduce the complexity of a phylogenetic tree I've produced, that has 128 taxa. I need a tool to prune the number of taxa down, preferably by branch length or distance matrix.

I have tried using Network by Fluxus, however this was only able to prune 2 taxa.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Tim

Check out drop.tip() in ape in R.

Hi Brice,

I checked it out, not exactly what we're looking for in this instance, but thanks for the suggestion, looks like it will come in handy in the future!

Thank you!
