Project: ScripTree Web Interface
Lab: Laboratoire d’Informatique, de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier (LIRMM)
Supervisor: F.CHEVENET


Problem: Phylogenetic trees are usefull in history of evolution studies. For computation and manipulation, trees are store in a bracket separated format (newick). In addition of tree conformation, biologists deals with various annotations data and want to visualize it on leafs or eages. The team I’ve join develop a scripting language for automatically stack annotations (graphical or textual) on the tree. Scriptree take 3 text files (tree conformation, annotations and procedures) and output the final figure of the decorated tree. But user need some scripting skills to write the procedures.

Solution: My project was to design a userfirendly web interface for scriptree. This interface is based on graphical buttons and documented list of choices. that help biologists to understand what they can do and how.
I’ve also worked to add some functions in scriptree like node annotations, SVG output format and particular tree conformations.
