Constructing Phylogenetic Tree using MEGA Software


A phylogenetic tree (a.k.a., cladogram or dendrogram) is a diagrammatic/graphical representation of the genetical/evolutionary relationship of species/organisms/genes. It helps to find the common ancestor. Construction of a phylogenetic tree consists of two phases, multiple sequence alignment and computing distance matrix.

This is a simple video tutorial for constructing a phylogenetic tree using Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (MEGA) software. The MEGA software produces phylogenetic trees from multiple sequences in various formats: rectangular, slanting, curved, radial, and curved.
