In an earlier post I reported on the creation of an Online Primer of Phylogenetic Networks, which is intended as a simple introduction to networks for those people who already know something about phylogenetic trees. The primer can be read online, or downloaded as a PDF file (for printing) or as an ePub file (for reading on small screens).
Here, I note that the online version of the primer has now been updated with three animations (animated GIF files). These illustrate:
- the creation of a Median Network from character data;
- the creation of a Parsimony Tree from a Median Network, and
- the creation of a Recombination Network from a Median Network.
