read.multidna {apex}R Documentation

Read multiple DNA alignments

Description

These functions read multiple DNA alignments and store the output in a multidna object. They are relying on ape's original functions read.dna and read.FASTA.

Usage

read.multidna(files, add.gaps = TRUE, ...)

read.multiFASTA(files, add.gaps = TRUE)

read.multiphyDat(files, add.gaps = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

files

a vector of characters indicating the paths to the files to read from.

add.gaps

a logical indicating if gap-only sequences should be added wherever sequences are missing; defaults to TRUE.

...

further arguments to be passed to the functions read.dna and read.FASTA.
