Upload a prune list for our tree of life

You can upload a list of NCBI taxonomy IDs and the tree of life will be pruned to include only the species from your file. There should one species ID per line in the file (plain text only). List of species IDs and names we use is available for download.

Upload your own tree

If you are using iTOL to upload your own trees, try creating a personal account. More info about the iTOL personal accounts is available here.

Use this form to upload your own phylogenetic tree. It should be in plain text, in one of supported formats (Newick, Nexus or PhyloXML) . Please check our help pages for detailed instructions and explanation of supported formats and extra features available.

You can either paste your tree into the box, or upload a file using the file selector below. Don't forget to select the correct tree format.

Paste or type the tree:Upload a file which contains your tree:

Tree format:

Make sure the file is plain text,
and contains only trees in the selected format.
