Tree of Life

Full Screen

A re-implementation of Jason Davies’ Phylogenetic Tree of Life, with faded gray lines to connect the leaf nodes of the tree to their corresponding labels inspired by a figure from Nature.

This implementation modifies the depth of interior nodes in a cluster layout to show branch lengths. Toggle the checkbox in the top-left corner to show or hide branch lengths, and mouseover a label to highlight its path to the root.
