phylocomr-package: Phylocom interface

Description Details Package API Author(s)


phylocomr gives you access to Phylocom, specifically the Phylocom C library (, licensed under BSD 2-clause (


This package isn't doing system calls to a separately installed Phylocom instance - but actually includes Phylocom itself in the package.

Phylocom is usually used either on the command line or through the R package picante, which has duplicated some of the Phylocom functionality.

In terms of performance, some functionality will be faster here than in picante, but the maintainers of picante have re-written some Phylocom functionality in C/C++, so performance should be similar in those cases.
