BioPerl integration of the NeXML exchange standard and Bio::Phylo toolkit

by Chase Miller for NESCent - National Evolutionary Synthesis Center

This project will integrate the NeXML exchange standard into BioPerl, facilitating the adoption of this standard and easing the transition from the overworked NEXUS standard. A wrapper will be used to allow BioPerl native access to the preferred NeXML parser (Bio::Phylo), allowing Bio::Phylo and NeXML to co-evolve without being encumbered by BioPerl. Additionally, test cases and example sets will be developed that target real world uses. More Info:
