We have developed a program for creating and saving images
of phylogenetic trees, called ArboDraw. The program can input
a tree in standard Newick format (used by Clustal W and other programs)
or a FASTA-formatted file used as input to the MUSCLE alignment
program (R. Edgar, 2004), included and automatically installed
with ArboDraw.

The image of the tree can be changed in many ways -- fonts,
horizontal and vertical scales, and different branches can be rendered
in different colors.  Annotations from the FASTA file can be viewed
on mouseover of the sequence labels, and these labels and annotations
can be edited by right-click.

The program is currently available for Windows, and is free
to both commercial and academic users. The installation
begins with a single click of the download package.

It is available from:


I hope you find it useful.
