Tree #1 from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26773003 :

enter image description here

Tree #2 from http://www.fisht1k.org/subproject/phylogeny :

enter image description here

I would like to group sequences on the tree and have a table/graphics on the side. Also, it would be great if at least some part of this task can be done programmatically. I was wondering what could be a good tool (or an R library, for example) to do that?

Thank you in advance, Ivan

Thanks everyone for the help! I currently use the Figtree tool for simple visualization. I will give the ggtree a try -- it could be a good way to annotate a big tree programmatically.

Cheers, Ivan

Hi Ivan,

No need to close a thread when the question is answered ;-)

I'm not sure if it will fit your needs exactly, but you can do many many things using ggtree in R http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/ggtree.html

Unfortunately, the answer is almost certainly Adobe Illustrator. It looks like trees were exported post-visualization using Figtree and manipulated/colored/added to after the fact.

Dear Brice, Hi. I have two questions from you

1- is there any guide, tutorial or even youtube about how to use FigTree, you can suggest?

2- Why you have used "Unfortunately" ?

  1. It's very straightforward; I don't think you really need one. You load in a Newick or Nexus tree and select options from menus on the side. You can export as a variety of formats, including vector graphics.
  2. "Unfortunately" in the sense that there's not a catch-all tool that will do all of the things that vanya.antonov wanted. Requires the use of graphic design tools.

Dear Brice hi and thank you for your help,

Does programs same as MEGA6 or Phylogeny can produce this "Newick or Nexus tree" ?

~ Take care

There's iTOL as well, with a lot of presentation options. http://itol.embl.de/

Try some of the tools mentioned in this post: What Is A Good Phylogenetic Tree Display Program For Large Data Sets?

There is an ETE toolkit what is a Python framework for the analysis and visualization of trees. It contains multiple tools and pipelines. Homepage is here http://etetoolkit.org/
