A fast and effective stochastic algorithm to infer phylogenetic trees by maximum likelihood. IQ-TREE compares favorably to RAxML and PhyML in terms of likelihoods with similar computing time (Nguyen et al., 2015).
UFBoot provides approximately unbiased branch support values and runs 100X faster than nonparametric bootstrap and 10 to 40 times faster than RAxML rapid bootstrap (Minh et al., 2013).
Phylogenomic partition models allowing for mixed data types, mixed rate heterogeneity types, linked or unlinked branch lengths.
The average response time is two working days.
