BppSuite is a suite of ready-to-use programs for phylogenetic and sequence analysis.

Here is the forge where the programs are described.


Standalone executables

Standalone executables are available for linux32, linux64, win32, win64 and Mac.

From source files

Getting the sources

This is done with git, for example in directory $bpp_dir:

cd $bpp_dir
git clone http://biopp.univ-montp2.fr/git/bppsuite

Bio++ libraries shoud be installed beforehand, for example in $bpp_dir.

cd bppsuite
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$bpp_dir ./ # prepare compilation
make # compile
make install # move files to the installation directory (this will create a $bpp_dir/bin/ directory)

That's it ! The executables are now installed in $bpp_dir/bin. For more information on how to compile and run Bio++ dependent programs, see the Usage pages.

  • Without the option -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$bpp_dir, the standard /usr/local directory will be used, and the executables installed in /usr/local/bin, a location which requires superuser access rights.

Bppsuite executables should know where the dynamic libraries are. A way to check it is the command:

ldd $bpp_dir$/bin/bppml

To configure this, set in the .bashrc the environment variable :


(and source this file or relog).


You can also generate the pdf documentation by typing :

make pdf


Many examples are available in the subdirectory of Examples.
