CAPE – Test Convergent and Parallel Evolution at the Amino Acid sequence level

CAPE

:: DESCRIPTION

Converge  (Cape : Convergent and Parallel Evolution at the Amino Acid Sequence Level) was designed to test convergent and parallel evolution at the amino acid sequence level. It computes the probabilities that the observed convergent and parallel substitutions are attributable to random chance.
