    Phylogenetic visualization software for STR results

    Can anyone recommend simple phylogenetic tree building software that does not require programming skills?

    I'm seeking programs that would help in making a map or diagram out of FTDNA project results (STRs). Can be paid.

    SAPP at http://www.jdvtools.com/SAPP/ is made to do just that.

    You need to enter the STR results into a text (.TXT) file for the kits you want to map into a tree. The input file is broken into sections with each section starting with a unique identifier.

    There is a sample input file available on a link from the Inputs help page.

    That help page also lists the usual sections and section formats (more advanced sections and options are listed on the Advanced Inputs page indexed from that Inputs help page as well).

    I'd second SAAP; I'd not used it until tonight actually but having tried and failed with other software to make decent mutation history trees I got SAAP working well in around 45 minutes from scratch.
    Paternal Y-DNA: U152>L2>BY3508>L135>BY3506 Estimated age of BY3506: 500BC
    Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor: Patrick Dillon, born around 1790 somewhere in Ireland (possibly County Mayo). Some of his descendants later moved to Manchester, England between the 1820s and 30s.

    I know I asked for a simple program, but SAAP is too simplistic and not very pleasing aesthetically to my liking. Ideally, I'd like to create something like the diagram attached. I know it was visualized using Figtree, but I'm not sure if STR results alone are enough.

    Does anyone have any experience with Figtree?

    A free phylogenetic diagram for plotting STR project results.
    Good illustration for members.
    Not a map. Not a tree.
    Haven't used it yet. Can't speak to it's user friendliness.

    I have used fluxus a little and I'm afraid that I don't think that the output is great, it does not actually/always give you a single anchor (starting point) for the tree so to speak and it can be quite hard to actually see how to interpret the output.

    You could have a look at this video by Maurice Gleeson though where he covers to use of Fluxus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvyHY4R6DwE However, I think that Maurice has moved onto SAAP now.
