MrBayes

Introduction

MrBayes is a program for Bayesian inference of phylogeny.

Running MrBayes in Parallel on Soroban

To run MrBayes in parallel, the parallel version of the program must be run using mpirun. The number of tasks requested via --ntasks is passed as the number of parallel processes to mpirun via the -np flag and the variable $SLURM_NTASKS.
