Visualizing metadata

Metadata associated with a phylogenetic tree (described in detail in Metadata and Phylogenetic Tree) can be visualized in a number of different ways:

Please note that when visualizing metadata through a tree property that can be adjusted in the right side panel (such as node color or node size), an exclamation mark will appear next to the control for that property to indicate that the setting is inactive because it is defined by metadata (see figure 25.14).

Figure 25.19: Different types of metadata kan be visualized by adjusting node size, shape, and color. Two color-code metadata layers (Year and Host) are shown in the right side of the tree.
