CIPRES Science Gateway: Exploring Evolutionary Relationships

CyberInfrastructure for Phylogenetic RESearch (CIPRES), is a gateway that launched in 2009 at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego that allows researchers to explore evolutionary connections among species. The gateway provides a sophisticated set of software tools and high-performance computers that would be too costly and difficult for individual researchers to create. It allows phylogenetic researchers to compare DNA sequences and predict common ancestors among plants and...
