Plotting trees with plotTree

Kat Holt’s lab have a nice set of scripts that wrap around ete2 which makes it nice ‘n’ easy to annotate trees – plotTree! It works out the box!

They have some great installation and usage instructions on the github, and some examples for the R half of the code, but the examples for the python bit are coming soon. I have been having a play and got it to work very nicely with an example data set, so thought I would post here, because there are a lot of options and I will probably forget what they are.

Hat tip to Danielle Ingle and Kate Mellor for the template that I used to make my version. The file names are links to the example files.

`python –tree ~/ –info ~/ –output ~/ –colour_dict ‘{“UK”:”#000000″,”African”:”#FFFF00″}’ –colour_tags lineage –margin_right 120 –margin_left 120 –margin_top 50 –margin_bottom 50 –length_scale 10`

One of the key arguments here is the --length_scale which sorts out the horizontal axis of the tree, I generated a few cramped looking trees before I twigged to this. You can also pass --fan instead to get a radial tree. --colour_tags determines which columns from your --info file get plotted onto the tree.

Anyway, there are loads of options to fiddle with, but the above will give you a decent rectangular tree to get you started. Bit more info below.

This is Kate’s colour_dict
