biopython v1.71.0 Bio.AlignIO.PhylipIO.PhylipIterator
Reads a Phylip alignment file returning a MultipleSeqAlignment iterator.
Record identifiers are limited to at most 10 characters.
It only copes with interlaced phylip files! Sequential files won’t work where the sequences are split over multiple lines.
For more information on the file format, please see: http://evolution.genetics.washington.edu/phylip/doc/sequence.html http://evolution.genetics.washington.edu/phylip/doc/main.html
