Here is a quick example of how to render a rectangular phylogenetic tree:
phylocanvas = new Smits.PhyloCanvas( dataObject, // Newick or XML string 'svgCanvas', // Div Id where to render 1000, 1000 // Height, Width in pixels );
The same tree, except this time a circular tree:
phylocanvas = new Smits.PhyloCanvas( dataObject, // Newick or XML string 'svgCanvas', // Div Id where to render 1000, 1000, // Height, Width in pixels 'circular' // Type of tree );
The XML definition already includes the option of adding a hyperlink reference and description. jsPhyloSVG taps into this, and formats the text nodes with this information.
Here's an example of what the XML format looks like:
<clade> <name>Subterranean Termite</name> <branch_length>0.17793</branch_length> <annotation> <desc>GQ502663.1 Gut clone Cf8-01 </desc> <uri>http://www.jsphylosvg.com/GQ502663 </uri> </annotation> </clade>
