How to make a rooted phylogenetic tree
Was that a question?
Use MEGA 5.2 Download it from: http://www.megasoftware.net/ Of course you will be able draw both rooted and unrooted trees.
This is my opinion, but MEGA is the worst program to draw a phylogenetic tree and construct phylogenies. I'm just curious what components of the program makes you recommend it? Perhaps I am missing something and should revisit it?
There are some other software that can be used to root a tree which you may want to have a look at:
Treeview http://taxonomy.zoology.gla.ac.uk/rod/treeview.html Mesquite http://mesquiteproject.org/mesquite/mesquite.html FigTree http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/software/figtree/
Use the VCF2PopTree software. It is so cool and it does not need any dependencies.
