dowser: B Cell Receptor Phylogenetics Toolkit

Provides a set of functions for inferring, visualizing, and analyzing B cell phylogenetic trees. Provides methods to 1) reconstruct unmutated ancestral sequences, 2) build B cell phylogenetic trees using multiple methods, 3) visualize trees with metadata at the tips, 4) reconstruct intermediate sequences, 5) detect biased ancestor-descendant relationships among metadata types Workflow examples available at documentation site (see URL).
