TreeMap is an experimental program for comparing host and parasite trees. TREEMAP performs cophylogeny mapping from a dependent evolutionary tree (e.g., a group of parasites) into an independent one (e.g., the hosts of those parasites), in order to recover the best possible coevolutionary explanation for the relationship between the two . The archetypal example is of the coevolution of pocket gophers and their chewing lice.

Preferential host switching by primate lentiviruses can account for phylogenetic similarity with the primate phylogeny.
