Fast maximum-likelihood tree building on large datasets with RAxML
Requires Geneious 10.0+
RAxML (Randomized Axelerated Maximum Likelihood) is a fast implementation of maximum-likelihood (ML) phylogeny estimation that operates on both nucleotide and protein sequence alignments.
Install the plugin by downloading the gplugin file and dragging it in to Geneious or use the plugin manager in Geneious (under Tools - Plugins in the menu).
Once installed, run the plugin by selecting a multiple sequence alignment and clicking on Tree in the toolbar. RAxML is available as an option at the top of the Tree building options window.
