free software to estimate dS and dN in pairwise comparisons

Sébastien Moretti
Hi

There are also some new developments in order to improve codeml - code
and models - which is part of PAML.
See
https://academic.oup.com/bioinformatics/article/doi/10.1093/bioinformatics/btw632/2584480/State-aggregation-for-fast-likelihood-computations

- FastCodeml  https://gitlab.isb-sib.ch/phylo/fastcodeml
- godon       https://bitbucket.org/Davydov/godon


FastCodeml is GPLv3 and godon - still beta - will also be GPL.

Sébastien

reason Debian won’t release a PAML package it until the language in the
README.txt is changed to clarify the license.

Agreed.
