GreenButton & Geneious

GreenButton boosts the performance of Geneious and enables the completion of intensive analyses in a fraction of the time. Geneious achieves this through linking to Azure to gain access to thousands of high performance computers.

GreenButton also supports the two following applications which can be used within Geneious:

  • ClustalW2:
    Is a general purpose multiple sequence alignment program for DNA or protein analysis.

  • MrBayes:
    A well-known program used for Bayesian estimation of phylogenor (MrBayes is a program used to compare sequences of genetic material from different organisms, allowing the user to estimate how the two sequences are likely to be related).
