I am working on a school biology program using alot of 3D and physx to represent trees, and I also have to write the tree parsing algorithms so it's quite a steep learning process in phylogeny trees.
the first tree I found was 1.79MB and formatted with branch length:
and now I have the 23MB version which is formatted:
I am only interested in species for which there could be a photo online, so I can delete all the species of type:
And then, there is also SP_... I can get rid of all the SP ones because they are not practical for a amateur biology research?
Are there other types of species nomenclatures other than ott and SP that i should take away from the project to make it easier?
Then i just have to rewrite the parser to use _ott as a species demarker and ) as a node demarker, are there some simplified reformatted versions of the tree available, can someone reccommend me a program where by i can take out everything that isnt binomial nomenclature and save as a .NWK file?
If Gaia time permits can you even write a new tree for me and upload it as a new resource for general use for the internet keeping only binomial named species?
