Tracer from R

'BEAST2' (<>) is a widely used Bayesian phylogenetic tool, that uses DNA/RNA/protein data and many model priors to create a posterior of jointly estimated phylogenies and parameters. 'Tracer' (<>) is a GUI tool to parse and analyze the files generated by 'BEAST2'. This package provides a way to parse and analyze 'BEAST2' input files without active user input, but using R function calls instead.
