Interoperable exchange of gene tree reconciliation maps

by Daniel Packer for National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent)

The goals of this project are: * Standardize the XML encoding of gene tree reconciliation data by extending an existing standard * Implement this encoding in a standard bioinformatics library (BioPerl) * Modify the iPlant GTR database to support import and export of GTR trees using the new encoding * If time permits, modify the iPlant tree visualization tool so that it internally uses the new encoding * If time permits, use iPlant's taxa resolution to populate taxonomic name strings
