Split Decomp

This worksheet performs split decomposition on a set of four DNA sequences and their associated amino acid sequences. The user can type in the sequences or paste them in from a text file. The program then translates the DNA sequences into amino acid sequences and calculates split indices and four-point conditions for each of the three possible unrooted phylogenies. The user can use these values to assess the data's support for each of these topologies.  Note that this file requires that "macros" are enabled in Microsoft Excel.
