Hi guys,

I am not completely sure this question fits Biostars (if not: please point me to the right discussion forum!).

I have generated a phylogenetic tree as a "consensus" of ~32,000 trees, each made from a different gene when compared with other species in a list I have.

As the consensus tree shows the most frequent topology, but many subtrees might have had another one, I would like to plot it more like a network so I can see multiple connections between "leaves" instead of only the most frequent one.

Any of you can advice me on a good workflow to follow, or best practices whatsoever? I am not expert in phylogeny so every time I start reading something it gets too complicated too quick. I'd like a starting point to read and understand, so to say, which I haven't found yet.
