Subtree extraction from very large phylogenetic trees
Crimson facilitates the extraction of sub-trees from very large phylogenetic trees. Trees are loaded into a shared database and sampled according to schemes controlled by the user. Comprehensive graphical dialogs allow users to easily manage and query trees in the database. Queries can be stored in the database to be shared with other users and moved between databases.
