Abstract: In bioinformatics, the phylogenetics is the study of evolutionary pathway that gives the relationship between various organisms. Phylogenetics act as an important tool of bioinformatics as it handle huge biological data in the form of evolutionary trees. This relationship can be inferred on the basis of the heritable traits such as nucleotide or protein sequences. The phylogenetic tree can be constructed using different methods: WPGMA, UPGMA, neighbor joining, maximum parsimony or etc. Phylogeny has become the central part of bioinformatics and can be used in different fields to solve their respective problems such as forensics, drug discovery, and vaccine development etc.
Keywords: Bioinformatics, WPGMA, UPGMA, Neighbor Joining, NCBI.
