Split Decomp

This worksheet performs split decomposition on a set of four DNA sequences and their associated amino acid sequences. The user can type in the sequences or paste them in from a text file. The program then translates the DNA sequences into amino acid sequences and calculates split indices and four-point conditions for each of the three possible unrooted phylogenies. The user can use these values to assess the data support for each of these topologies.
