Bayesian phylogenetic analysis. Beast 2 provides a library for MCMC and evolutionary computing.


DensiTree is a program for qualitative analysis of sets of trees that make it possible to visually inspect the posterior distribution of an MCMC run over a tree. Many features of the posterior distribution are easily visible, such as agreement/disagreement of tree topologies, uncertainty in node heights and relative dominance of particular topologies.

Computational geographic phylogenetics, applied for example to language data, as demonstrated here and here.
