Hello there, I wanted to make a suggestion/request for a phylogenetic analysis plugin for BEAST. I imagine the plugin would behave much like the current Beauti GUI, combined with BEAST itself.
Currently, Beauti requires users to download multiple executables and move input/output files from one to the next, and it's in general kind of unnecessarily complicated. It feels like a great opportunity for a Geneious plugin, as documentation and even a GUI already exists, it's just not packaged in that crisp clean way that the Geneious team could provide.
Ideally, one could feed a Geneious BEAST plugin an alignment file, and it would format it as Beauti would, and then do all the finnicky bits to build individual trees and make a combined assembled tree and output both files like MrBayes already does.
