ape and other tree packages in R (I’m looking at you, @klaus_schliep, @tanja_stadler, @phylorich, etc, etc) –
@mathmomike and I are noodling about with some new phylogenetic diversity ideas and I’d like to code them up. I’m hoping that there are some really lovely ways for me to code up a new PD by just specifying some functions to use for a recursion. Can you give me some pointers?
[I suppose I should say more widely that I wouldn’t be opposed to coding these things up in Python, OCaml, etc, but it seems to me that there are lots of wonderful R packages for this sort of thing and I could try to merge my code in there if this goes anywhere.]
Thank you in advance. Below is my mental image of you, delivering me lots of trees.
