Tree administration

OCCURRENCE

ARB_NT/Tree Admin

 

DESCRIPTION

The tree admin window allows to perform several operations on the trees stored in the database.

To perform one of the operations

  1. select 'Tree Admin' from the 'Tree' menu or click the admin button in the tree selection window,
  2. select a tree from the tree list at the bottom of the window
  3. choose one of the following operations

 

Available operations

Delete

Delete the selected tree from the database.
A tree may only be deleted if a protection level equal or higher (than the one assigned to the selected tree) has been chosen in the 'ARB_NTREE' main window.

Rename

Change the name of the selected tree. Tree names have to be unique.

Copy

Create a copy of a tree. Use this e.g. before you optimize a tree using ARB-Parsimony (see ´Starting ARB Parsimony´).

Export

Save tree to file in NEWICK format (see ´Export tree to file´).

Import

Load a NEWICK formatted tree from a file (see ´Load tree from file´).

Change tree comment

Each tree has a comment attached. The comment of each tree is displayed behind the trees name in the tree selection list.
The comment of the selected tree is displayed in the comment box. Simply modify the text there to change the comment.
Several functions that modify trees automatically append a note to the comment (e.g. copying or importing a tree).

Set protection level

The selection button above the tree comment box shows the protection level assigned to the currently selected tree. Change its value to assign a different protection level. See 'Delete' for effects.

Change order of trees

To change the order of the trees use the buttons at the right side of the tree selection list.
