Fast Construction of Parsimonious
Hybridization Networks for Multiple Phylogenetic Trees",

PIRNS is a program for reconstructing the most
parsimonious phylogenetic networks that contain a set of given
phylogenetic trees. Its goal is similar to the program PIRN.
PIRNS is written in Java by Sajad Mirzaei.
Contact Sajad (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions about
PIRNS java executable:
to run it, first download to your own machine. To
run it, type: java -jar pirns.jar <input gene trees>. The
gene tree file should contain only gene tree file in the Newick
format. It is the same data format as PIRN. The
output network is stored in a file called output.gml. It is in
the GML format. See the PIRN's webpage for advice on how to view
