Welcome to Hypergeny. Hypergeny is an online tool for viewing large phylogenetic trees. We hope to help researchers visualise and understand large phylogenetic trees by offering a hyperbolic tree browser.
Java v1.4.1+ required. Get it here: Windows/Linux/Solaris - OSX. You only need the JRE. SDK is not required to run the applets on this site. You may need to contact your system administrator if you don't have admin rights on your workstation.
Test your configuration here. The java application should start automatically in about 30 seconds. If it doesn't you'll probably have to install a newer java version. Use the links above to find and install the right java version for your machine.
Linux: Don't forget to link your plugin to your browser, e.g. ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

The hyperbolic tree viewer can be integrated in existing web applications by sending a well-formed HTTP-POST request to http://bioinformatics.psb.ugent.be/hypergeny/api/. The tree to be displayed should be in standard Newick format and can either be included in the POST request or loaded from an existing url.
Below are the settings required to view your own tree by HTTP-POST request:
