Introduction
     The following analyses can be conducted with this program.
 1.  Comparison of three alternative phylogenetic trees for four monophyletic clusters of sequences  (four-cluster analysis; Rzhetsky, Kumar & Nei 1995).
 2.  Examination of the null hypothesis that an interior branch length is significantly greater than zero (interior-branch test; Rzhetsky & Nei 1992).
 3.  Estimation of average pairwise distances (and standard errors) within and between clusters of  sequences.
 4.  Relative rate tests and the computation of the time of divergence.
