-C Enable verbose output for the "-L" and "-f i" options. This will produce more, as
well as more verbose output files

DEFAULT: OFF

-d start ML optimization from random starting tree

DEFAULT: OFF

-D ML search convergence criterion. This will break off ML searches if the relative
Robinson-Foulds distance between the trees obtained from two consecutive lazy SPR
cycles is smaller or equal to 1%. Usage recommended for very large datasets in
terms of taxa. On trees with more than 500 taxa this will yield execution time
improvements of approximately 50% While yielding only slightly worse trees.

DEFAULT: OFF

-e set model optimization precision in log likelihood units for final optimization of
tree topology

DEFAULT: 0.1
for models not using proportion of invariant sites estimate

0.001 for models using proportion of invariant sites estimate

-E specify an exclude file name, that contains a specification of alignment positions
you wish to exclude. Format is similar to Nexus, the file shall contain entries
like "100-200 300-400", to exclude a single column write, e.g., "100-100", if you
use a mixed model, an appropriately adapted model file will be written.

-f select algorithm:

"-f a": rapid Bootstrap analysis and search for best-scoring ML tree in one program
run "-f A": compute marginal ancestral states on a ROOTED reference tree provided
with "-t" "-f b": draw bipartition information on a tree provided with "-t" based
on multiple trees

(e.g., from a bootstrap) in a file specified by "-z"

"-f B": optimize br-len scaler and other model parameters (GTR, alpha, etc.) on a tree
provided with "-t".
The tree needs to contain branch lengths. The branch lengths will not be optimized,
just scaled by a single common value.

sequence test for Jiajie, users will also need to provide a list of taxon names via
-Y separated by whitespaces "-f d": new rapid hill-climbing

The model parameters will be estimated on the first tree only!

"-f G": compute per site log Likelihoods for one ore more trees passed via
"-z" and write them to a file that can be read by CONSEL. The model parameters
will be re-estimated for each tree

based on multiple trees
(e.g., from a bootstrap) in a file specified by "-z"

"-f I": a simple tree rooting algorithm for unrooted trees.
It roots the tree by rooting it at the branch that best balances the subtree
lengths (sum over branches in the subtrees) of the left and right subtree. A
branch with an optimal balance does not always exist! You need to specify the tree
you want to root via "-t".

"-f j": generate a bunch of bootstrapped alignment files from an original alignemnt file.
You need to specify a seed with "-b" and the number of replicates with "-#"

"-f J": Compute SH-like support values on a given tree passed via "-t". "-f k":
Fix long branch lengths in partitioned data sets with missing data using the

branch length stealing algorithm.
This option only works in conjunction with "-t", "-M", and "-q". It will print out
a tree with shorter branch lengths, but having the same likelihood score.

"-f m": compare bipartitions between two bunches of trees passed via "-t" and "-z"
respectively. This will return the Pearson correlation between all bipartitions
found in the two tree files. A file called
RAxML_bipartitionFrequencies.outpuFileName will be printed that contains the
pair-wise bipartition frequencies of the two sets

"-f n": compute the log likelihood score of all trees contained in a tree file provided by
"-z" under GAMMA or GAMMA+P-Invar The model parameters will be estimated on the

evolutionary placement algorithm.

"-f q": fast quartet calculator "-f r": compute pairwise Robinson-Foulds (RF)
distances between all pairs of trees in a tree file passed via "-z"

if the trees have node labales represented as integer support values the program will also
compute two flavors of
the weighted Robinson-Foulds (WRF) distance

"-f R": compute all pairwise Robinson-Foulds (RF) distances between a large reference tree
passed via "-t"

and many smaller trees (that must have a subset of the taxa of the large tree) passed via
"-z".
This option is intended for checking the plausibility of very large phylogenies
that can not be inspected visually any more.

subalignments "-f S": compute site-specific placement bias using a leave one out
test inspired by the evolutionary placement algorithm "-f t": do randomized tree
searches on one fixed starting tree "-f T": do final thorough optimization of ML

implementation for more efficient handling of multi-gene/whole-genome datasets!

"-f w": compute ELW test on a bunch of trees passed via "-z"
The model parameters will be estimated on the first tree only!

"-f W": compute ELW test on a bunch of trees passed via "-z"
The model parameters will be re-estimated for each tree

"-f x": compute pair-wise ML distances, ML model parameters will be estimated on an MP
starting tree or a user-defined tree passed via "-t", only allowed for GAMMA-based
models of rate heterogeneity

you will need to start RAxML with a non-comprehensive reference tree and an
alignment containing all sequences (reference + query)

DEFAULT for "-f": new rapid hill climbing

-F enable ML tree searches under CAT model for very large trees without switching to
GAMMA in the end (saves memory). This option can also be used with the GAMMA
models in order to avoid the thorough optimization of the best-scoring ML tree in
the end.

DEFAULT: OFF

-g specify the file name of a multifurcating constraint tree this tree does not need
to be comprehensive, i.e. must not contain all taxa

-G enable the ML-based evolutionary placement algorithm heuristics by specifiyng a
threshold value (fraction of insertion branches to be evaluated using slow
insertions under ML).

-h Display this help message.

-H Disable pattern compression.

DEFAULT: ON

-i Initial rearrangement setting for the subsequent application of topological changes

criterion "-I autoMRE_IGN" for metrics similar to MRE, but include bipartitions
under the threshold whether they are compatible

or not. This emulates MRE but is faster to compute.

You also need to pass a tree file containg several bootstrap replicates via "-z"

-j Specifies that intermediate tree files shall be written to file during the standard
ML and BS tree searches.

DEFAULT: OFF

-J Compute majority rule consensus tree with "-J MR" or extended majority rule
consensus tree with "-J MRE" or strict consensus tree with "-J STRICT". For a
custom consensus threshold >= 50%, specify T_<NUM>, where 100 >= NUM >= 50.
Options "-J STRICT_DROP" and "-J MR_DROP" will execute an algorithm that identifies
dropsets which contain rogue taxa as proposed by Pattengale et al. in the paper
"Uncovering hidden phylogenetic consensus". You will also need to provide a tree
file containing several UNROOTED trees via "-z"

-k Specifies that bootstrapped trees should be printed with branch lengths. The
bootstraps will run a bit longer, because model parameters will be optimized at the
end of each run under GAMMA or GAMMA+P-Invar respectively.

DEFAULT: OFF

-K Specify one of the multi-state substitution models (max 32 states) implemented in
RAxML. Available models are: ORDERED, MK, GTR

DEFAULT: GTR model

"-L MR" or an extended majority rule consensus tree with "-L MRE". For a custom
consensus threshold >= 50%, specify "-L T_<NUM>", where 100 >= NUM >= 50. You will
of course also need to provide a tree file containing several UNROOTED trees via
"-z"!

partitioned models you can in addition specify the per-gene AA model in the
partition file (see manual for details). Also note that if you estimate AA GTR
parameters on a partitioned dataset, they will be linked (estimated jointly) across
all partitions to avoid over-parametrization

-M Switch on estimation of individual per-partition branch lengths. Only has effect
when used in combination with "-q" Branch lengths for individual partitions will be
printed to separate files A weighted average of the branch lengths is computed by
using the respective partition lengths

DEFAULT: OFF

-n Specifies the name of the output file.

-o Specify the name of a single outgrpoup or a comma-separated list of outgroups, eg
"-o Rat" or "-o Rat,Mouse", in case that multiple outgroups are not monophyletic
the first name in the list will be selected as outgroup, don't leave spaces between
taxon names!

-O Disable check for completely undetermined sequence in alignment. The program will
not exit with an error message when "-O" is specified.

DEFAULT: check enabled

-p Specify a random number seed for the parsimony inferences. This allows you to
reproduce your results and will help me debug the program.

-P Specify the file name of a user-defined AA (Protein) substitution model. This file
must contain 420 entries, the first 400 being the AA substitution rates (this must
be a symmetric matrix) and the last 20 are the empirical base frequencies

-q Specify the file name which contains the assignment of models to alignment
partitions for multiple models of substitution. For the syntax of this file please
consult the manual.

-r Specify the file name of a binary constraint tree. this tree does not need to be
comprehensive, i.e. must not contain all taxa

-R Specify the file name of a binary model parameter file that has previously been
generated with RAxML using the -f e tree evaluation option. The file name should
be: RAxML_binaryModelParameters.runID

-s Specify the name of the alignment data file in PHYLIP format

alignment columns that do not form part of a stem and characters "()<>[]{}" to
define stem regions and pseudoknots

-t Specify a user starting tree file name in Newick format

-T PTHREADS VERSION ONLY! Specify the number of threads you want to run. Make sure to
set "-T" to at most the number of CPUs you have on your machine, otherwise, there
will be a huge performance decrease!

-u use the median for the discrete approximation of the GAMMA model of rate
heterogeneity

DEFAULT: OFF

-U Try to save memory by using SEV-based implementation for gap columns on large gappy
alignments The technique is described here:
http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/12/470 This will only work for DNA and/or
PROTEIN data and only with the SSE3 or AVX-vextorized version of the code.

-v Display version information

-V Disable rate heterogeneity among sites model and use one without rate heterogeneity
instead. Only works if you specify the CAT model of rate heterogeneity.

DEFAULT: use rate heterogeneity

DEFAULT: current directory

-W Sliding window size for leave-one-out site-specific placement bias algorithm only
effective when used in combination with "-f S"

DEFAULT: 100 sites

unlike in version 7.0.4 RAxML will conduct rapid BS replicates under the model of
rate heterogeneity you specified via "-m" and not by default under CAT

-X Same as the "-y" option below, however the parsimony search is more superficial.
RAxML will only do a randomized stepwise addition order parsimony tree
reconstruction without performing any additional SPRs. This may be helpful for
very broad whole-genome datasets, since this can generate topologically more
different starting trees.

DEFAULT: OFF

-y If you want to only compute a parsimony starting tree with RAxML specify "-y", the
program will exit after computation of the starting tree

DEFAULT: OFF

-Y Pass a quartet grouping file name defining four groups from which to draw quartets
The file input format must contain 4 groups in the following form: (Chicken, Human,
Loach), (Cow, Carp), (Mouse, Rat, Seal), (Whale, Frog); Only works in combination
with -f q !

-z Specify the file name of a file containing multiple trees e.g. from a bootstrap
that shall be used to draw bipartition values onto a tree provided with "-t", It
can also be used to compute per site log likelihoods in combination with "-f g" and
to read a bunch of trees for a couple of other options ("-f h", "-f m", "-f n").

-#|-N Specify the number of alternative runs on distinct starting trees In combination
with the "-b" option, this will invoke a multiple boostrap analysis Note that "-N"
has been added as an alternative since "-#" sometimes caused problems with certain
MPI job submission systems, since "-#" is often used to start comments. If you
want to use the bootstopping criteria specify "-# autoMR" or "-# autoMRE" or "-#
autoMRE_IGN" for the majority-rule tree based criteria (see -I option) or "-#
autoFC" for the frequency-based criterion. Bootstopping will only work in
combination with "-x" or "-b"

DEFAULT: 1 single analysis

DEFAULT: Off

--silent Disables printout of warnings related to identical sequences and entirely
undetermined sites in the alignment

DEFAULT: Off

--no-seq-check Disables checking the input MSA for identical sequences and entirely
undetermined sites.
Enabling this option may save time, in particular for large phylogenomic
alignments. Before using this, make sure to check the alignment using the "-f c"
option!

DEFAULT: Off

--no-bfgs Disables automatic usage of BFGS method to optimize GTR rates on unpartitioned
DNA datasets

DEFAULT: BFGS on

--asc-corr Allows to specify the type of ascertainment bias correction you wish to use.
There are 3

types available: --asc-corr=lewis: the standard correction by Paul Lewis
--asc-corr=felsenstein: a correction introduced by Joe Felsenstein that allows to
explicitely specify

the number of invariable sites (if known) one wants to correct for.

--asc-corr=stamatakis: a correction introduced by myself that allows to explicitely
specify
the number of invariable sites for each character (if known) one wants to correct
for.

--flag-check When using this option, RAxML will only check if all command line flags
specifed are available and then exit

with a message listing all invalid command line flags or with a message stating
that all flags are valid.

--auto-prot=ml|bic|aic|aicc When using automatic protein model selection you can chose the
criterion for selecting these models.

RAxML will test all available prot subst. models except for LG4M, LG4X and
GTR-based models, with and without empirical base frequencies. You can chose
between ML score based selection and the BIC, AIC, and AICc criteria.

DEFAULT: ml

--epa-keep-placements=number specify the number of potential placements you want to keep
for each read in the EPA algorithm.

Note that, the actual values printed will also depend on the settings for
--epa-prob-threshold=threshold !

DEFAULT: 7

--epa-prob-threshold=threshold specify a percent threshold for including potential
placements of a read depending on the

maximum placement weight for this read. If you set this value to 0.01 placements
that have a placement weight of 1 per cent of the maximum placement will still be
printed to file if the setting of --epa-keep-placements allows for it

DEFAULT: 0.01

--epa-accumulated-threshold=threshold specify an accumulated likelihood weight threshold
for which different placements of read are printed

to file. Placements for a read will be printed until the sum of their placement
weights has reached the threshold value. Note that, this option can neither be
used in combination with --epa-prob-threshold nor with --epa-keep-placements!

--JC69 specify that all DNA partitions will evolve under the Jukes-Cantor model, this
overrides all other model specifications for DNA partitions.

DEFAULT: Off

--K80 specify that all DNA partitions will evolve under the K80 model, this overrides all
other model specifications for DNA partitions.

DEFAULT: Off

--HKY85 specify that all DNA partitions will evolve under the HKY85 model, this overrides
all other model specifications for DNA partitions.

DEFAULT: Off
