What is PhyML?
PhyML stands for Phylogenetic Maximum Likelihood. It is a phylogeny software based on the maximum-likelihood principle to estimate maximum likelihood phylogenies from alignments of nucleotide or amino acid sequences.
To run PhyML in MPI mode, you should setup the required PATH by command:
|HPC2021||module load phyml|
then execute (or add this line to SLURM job command file):
mpirun -np [NPROCS] phyml sequences_file data_type format data_sets bootstrap_sets model [kappa] invar nb_categ alpha tree opt_topology opt_lengths
