Abstract

We present a computer program to simulate the evolution of a nucleotide sequence on a phylogenetic tree with four tips. The program, Hetero, allows users to assign lineage-specific differences in the rate matrices used to describe the evolutionary process. It has a simple user interface and output, making it equally useful in the teaching and research of phylogenetics.
