(Also useful for determining the range of a species)
(More professional phylogenetic trees)
* Align your sequence using your favorite [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequence_alignment sequence alignment] program.
* Use the FASTA file to build a phylogenetic tree using [http://www.megasoftware.net Mega 7] for Windows, [http://ugene.net uGene] for Linux or the more difficult but powerful multiplatform command line tool [http://sco.h-its.org/exelixis/web/software/raxml/index.html RaxML] and the java program [http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/software/figtree FigTree] to visualize the tree. The easiest way to make a tree is to use the one-click mode at [http://phylogeny.lirmm.fr http://phylogeny.lirmm.fr] - this website allows you to upload a FASTA file, aligns the sequences and makes a tree using the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maximum_likelihood Maximum Likelihood] algorithm.
*For more professional phylogenetic trees, use RaxML or MrBayes to generate the tree, then visualize it with Figtree.
