PHASE (PHylogenetics And Sequence Evolution) is a package that performs molecular phylogenetic inference. The software seeks to accurately compare molecular sequences to determine the likely evolutionary relationships between a group of species.This package is designed specifically for use with RNA sequences that have a conserved secondary structure, e.g., rRNA and tRNA. It is well known that compensatory substitutions occur in the paired regions of RNA secondary structures; this means that substitutions occurring on one side of a pair are correlated with substitutions on the other side. Most phylogenetic programs assume that each site in a molecule evolves independently of the others but this assumption is not valid for RNA genes.
