ASTRAL is a tool for estimating an unrooted species tree given a set of unrooted gene trees. ASTRAL is statistically consistent under the multi-species coalescent model (and thus is useful for handling incomplete lineage sorting, i.e., ILS). ASTRAL finds the species tree that has the maximum number of shared induced quartet trees with the set of gene trees, subject to the constraint that the set of bipartitions in the species tree comes from a predefined set of bipartitions.
Upcoming modulesystem change alert!
Due to large number of applications and their versions it is not practical to keep them explicitly listed at our wiki pages. Therefore an upgrade of modulefiles is underway. A feature of this upgrade will be the existence of default module for every application. This default choice does not need version number and it will load some (usually latest) version.
You can test the new version now by adding a line
to your script before loading a module. Then, you can list all versions of astral and load default version of astral as
module avail astral/ # list available modules module load astral # load (default) module
If you wish to keep up to the current system, it is still possible. Simply list all modules by
module avail astral
and choose explicit version you want to use.
