This is the Windows app named Javamony whose latest release can be downloaded as Javamony.jar. It can be run online in the free hosting provider OnWorks for workstations.

Download and run online this app named Javamony with OnWorks for free.

- 3. Upload this application in such filemanager.

- 4. Start any OS OnWorks online emulator from this website, but better Windows online emulator.

- 5. From the OnWorks Windows OS you have just started, goto our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.

- 6. Download the application and install it.

Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.





Based on the not-so-successful Pysimony (https://sourceforge.net/projects/pysimony/), the same determined student takes another go at the phylogenetic problem.

Javamony is invoked as follows:
java -jar Javamony.jar [input.fasta] [random / stepwise (starting tree)] [# of bootstraps] [outgroup taxon #1] [outgroup taxon #2] ...

Not meant as a competitive phylogenetic inference program, Javamony is an opportunity for me to acquire the Java language while learning to address and solve fundamental problems in phylogenetics. Therefore, for my own educational benefit, all code is original. Of course, there are probably a good deal of mistakes as well.

I distribute Javamony, as I did Pysimony, hoping that it will be of educational value to someone else or at least vaguely amusing.

Upcoming features will be:
- Support for Amino Acid sequences
- Support for additional file formats (e.g. Nexus)
- Multithreading
- Additional scoring methods (e.g. maximum likelihood)


  • Uses maximum parsimony
  • Reads a FASTA input file (DNA only)
  • User-established outgroup
  • Random and stepwise-addition starting trees
  • Uses SPR (subtree pruning and regrafting) tree search
  • Performs bootstrapping
  • Outputs standard Newick format with bootstrap support and branchlengths
  • Draws final tree with bootstrap support
