Phylogenetic trees from FASTA files

I am currently trying to create a phylogenetic tree from a FASTA file of 60+ DNA sequences. Does anyone have any idea how to go about this?

phylotools perhaps


If you don't need to do it all in R, you can also use some great dedicated online tools to help. I like Clustal Omega for example. They can convert fasta into phylogeny trees and you can download results in various formats.

They have an API you can use, so you could call it from R then get the results back in and use other packages for visualisation or additional analysis.

Hope this helps,
