 The main goal of my current project is modifying and updating Drawgram, an existing BioPerl script that manages drawing of phylogenetic trees. The main difference between Drawgram and other tree-drawing programs is the ability to simultaneously draw cladograms with their corresponding sequence alignments. This would be a very attractive and useful tool for validating potential evolutionary relationships among species, as well as for identifying the key residues and amino acid stretches participating in inner and outer protein interactions. The script is intended to be user-friendly and optimized for the quick receipt of high quality cladogram images.
