Phycas is a Python extension for carrying out Bayesian phylogenetic analyses. The current version (2.1.0) was posted here August 13, 2014. While it should be possible to build Phycas on most Linux systems, we can only provide pre-built versions for a couple of different combinations of operating system and Python version.



Pre-built version for MacOS 10.9 (Mavericks)

  1. Download phycas-2.1.0-mac.tar.gz
  2. Follow directions in the manual to install

Pre-built version for Windows 7, Python 2.7

The Windows version does not currently work: we are working on the problem and will remove this message when we solve the problem.

  1. Download
  2. Follow directions in the manual to install

Build from source on Linux

  1. Download phycas-2.1.0-src.tar.gz
  2. Download INSTALL
  3. Follow directions in the INSTALL file to build a version from source


Version 2.0 was a major revision, and we have changed the way we distribute Phycas, so it is quite possible that there are glitches that need to be worked out. If you have problems getting Phycas to work, please write to Paul Lewis.
