TREECON is a software package developed primarily for the construction and drawing of phylogenetic trees on the basis of evolutionary distances inferred from nucleic and amino acid sequences. The evolutionary distance is computed for all pairs of organisms (or sequences) and a phylogenetic tree is inferred by considering the relationship between these distance values. In pairwise distance methods, the dissimilarity (fraction of substitutions) is usually converted into evolutionary distance by correcting for multiple mutations.
