I produced a phylogenetic tree in MEGA X using the Max Likelihood method and get a nice looking tree. I want to transfer the tree file over to FigTree to change the layout, colors, etc. Note: this has worked in the past with no problem.
Now, when I use the command in MEGA that says "convert data to newick file" it does it, but when I try to open that file in FigTree I get the error "missing closing ')' in tree"
I'm thinking MEGA isn't converting the data to a Newick file proper, but how do I check this or fix it? I've messed around with add additional ")" all over the place with no luck.
Is there another tree viewer like FigTree that is just as easy to use that might work? Thank you.
