Biology pages of Jan De Laet


My main interests are in phylogenetic theory (parsimony analysis, character weighting, inapplicable characters, sequence alignment) and in plant systematics and evolution.

For my research in phylogenetics, I am associated with Meise Botanic Garden. My day time job, as an ICT professional, is at the university of Leuven, Belgium.

More information about anagallis, my program for parsimony analysis of character hierarchies, can be found here. Quick download links are here.

I also contribute to Kevin Nixon's
