IQ-Tree is a very efficient maximum likelihood phylogenetic software.

Required Modules


  • iq-tree

System Variables

  • HPC_{{#uppercase:iq-tree}}_DIR - installation directory


If you publish research that uses iq-tree you have to cite it as follows:

  • To cite IQ-TREE please use:

Lam Tung Nguyen, Heiko A. Schmidt, Arndt von Haeseler, and Bui Quang Minh (2015) IQ-TREE: A fast and effective stochastic algorithm for estimating maximum likelihood phylogenies. Mol. Biol. Evol., 32, 268-274. (DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msu300)

  • To cite the ultrafast bootstrap (UFBoot) please use:

  • IQ-TREE can use PLL for likelihood computations, if you use "-pll" option please cite:
