TreeView X – phylogeny tree viewer

TreeView X is an open source and multi-platform program to display phylogenetic trees.

It can read and display NEXUS and Newick format tree files (such as those output by PAUP*, ClustalX, TREE-PUZZLE, and other programs). It allows users to order the branches of the trees, and to export the trees in SVG format.

It uses the wxWidgets C++ library.

  • Tree editor:
    • Slanted cladogram.
    • Rectangular cladogram.
    • Phylogram.
  • Show internal node labels.
  • Zoom.
  • Reads many different tree file formats (including NEXUS, PHYLIP, Hennig86, NONA, MEGA, and ClustalW/X).
  • Support for picture files (SVG and EMF).
  • Export to SVG format.
  • Print preview.
  • Print multiple trees per page, and one tree over more than one page.
  • Drag-and-drop.
