I need to draw a number of large phylogenetic tree diagrams in a document and it appears that tikz-qtree may be the best package for this task. A manual approach does not seem the best solution to converting the trees from the Newick tree format generated by phylogenetic software to TikZ code. It would be arduous and error prone to do the conversion manually and I'm hoping that someone has developed an automated conversion. Does anyone here know of such a solution?
