Getting phylogenetic trees on the fly for education and outreach. An overview of the [Phylotastic]( project.

DateLife, leveraging databases and analytical tools to reveal the dated Tree of Life

In this paper we present datelife, a service implemented via an R package and a web site ( for efficient reuse, summary and reanalysis of published data on lineage divergence times.

Phylotastic, improving access to tree-of-life knowledge with flexible, on-the-fly delivery of trees

Phylogenetic knowledge is of great importance for research and education. Yet, it remians mostly unavailable for the non-specialist and the general public. In this paper, we report a publicly accessible system for on-the-fly delivery of phylogenetic knowledge that consists of a web portal that implements 3 types of workflows to obtain species phylogenies (scaled by geologic time and decorated with thumbnail images); 19 underlying web services accessible via a common registry; and toolbox code in R and Python so that others can create applications that leverage these services.
