As part of a graduate project I created the phylogen script, which combines the ASTRAL and IQTREE analysis tools into one iterative approach to finding the highest bootstrap score tree for various species of Mayflies. At the completion of the project, there was some work left undone, and I had a few ideas on how to improve the average bootstrap score of the final tree. For this hackweek, I'll complete the phylogen script by; first, calling the ASTRAL jar file in python using jpype, and second, creating python bindings to the IQTREE c code. Once these are complete, I hope that the script will run a bit faster, enabling me to run additional analysis on the mayfly genetic encoding data, and revealing a better tree.
