class Bio::Phylip::DistanceMatrix

This is a parser class for phylip distance matrix data created by dnadist, protdist, or restdist commands.

Attributes

matrix[R]

distance matrix (returns Ruby's Matrix object)

original_matrix[R]

matrix contains values as original strings. Use it when you doubt precision of floating-point numbers.

otu_names[R]

names of OTUs

otus[R]

number of OTUs
