TF-pipe is a Perl pipeline to accelerate TreeFinder analyses manifold by running parallel jobs on clusters running the Sun Grid Engine. It runs several rounds of ML optimization as is described in Verbruggen et al. 2010 and Cocquyt et al. 2010.

Note: Gangolf has put support for multicore processors in the March 2011 version of Treefinder, so unless you want to run several rounds as described in the papers above, you're probably better off using the built-in multicore support.

This is for advanced users only; you will have to make changes to the code to get the dependencies right and change the program settings to suit your needs.
