What is clann?

Clann (the Irish word for “family”), is a free software program designed and written by Chris Creevey at the Bioinformatics and Molecular Evolution Unit at NUI Maynooth. The purpose of the program is to implement methods of determining the optimal phylogenetic supertree, given a set of input source trees.
