HIV/AIDS researchers are using machine learning techniques to identify how the human immune system influences the evolution of HIV within a human host. To do so, they need to take the evolutionary tree of HIV into account. PhyloDet is a scalable Phylogeny Tree Browser to allow biologists to visualize multiple traits mapped to the tree.
