SATé is a software package for inferring a sequence alignment and phylogenetic tree. The iterative algorithm involves repeated alignment and tree searching operations. The original data set is divided into smaller subproblems by a tree-based decomposition. These subproblems are aligned and further merged for phylogenetic tree inference.
