iGTP website  

iGTP is a program designed to help biologists infer species phylogenies from gene phylogenies, using the gene tree parsimony (GTP) approach. The program implements efficient heuristics which allows it to handle large-scale species tree inference under the duplication, duplication-loss, and deep coalescence reconciliation costs.

iGTP provides the following features:

* Allowing unrooted input gene trees
* Providing three-dimensional tree visualization
* Computing reconciliation costs

Required Modules


  • iGTP

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:iGTP}}_DIR
  • HPC_{{#uppercase:iGTP}}_BIN
