Return Time Distribution (RTD) based alignment-free approach
for clustering & phylogeny of genomic sequences

Select the size of k-mer
: [Note: K-mer size between 4 and 7 is recommended]

Paste the nucleotide sequences below in FASTA format [Sample input: Dataset 1, Dataset 2, Dataset 3]

[Note: Only standard nucleotide letters (A, T, G, C) are accepted, ambiguous characters are ignored] 

OR upload using the file (< 5 Mb)

For input file >5 Mb and/or slow internet speed, users are requested to Download and use the standalone version of the
RTD Phylogeny program.
