1.23 Phylogenetic Tree (Pro)


The Phylogenetic Tree app imports data file of phylogenetic tree and visual it as a dendrogram.

The app supports following data file format

  • Nexus (*.nex, *.nxs)
  • PHYLIP (*.ph)
  • CLUSTAL W / Clustal Omega (*.dnd, *.ph, *.txt)

The app creates a dendrogram from existing phylogenetic data files. It does not provide any methods to calculate the distance or cluster the nodes.


This tutorial uses the app’s built-in sample file. To find the sample files:

  1. Right click the Phylogenetic Tree App icon in the Apps Gallery and choose Show Samples Folder.
  2. A folder will open. Drag-and-drop the project file PhylogeneticTreeSample.opju from the folder onto Origin.

Visualize the Phylogenetic Data File

  1. In the sample folder we have prepared a phylogenetic tree data file in txt format, UniProt.txt
  2. Click the Phylogenetic Tree icon Phylogenetic Tree Icon.png from the "Apps Gallery". Browse to open the UniProt.txt from the sample folder. The graph with phylogenetic tree and a worksheet with plot data are generated.
Notes: You can change the values on worksheet to change the display of phylogenetic tree).
