BEAST has been developed in Java, which allows the same code to run on any platform that has the Java software installed. We have also created packages for each of the common operating systems to provide a user-interface that is ‘native’ and familiar.
On Linux, Unix or Mac OS X Command Line
BEAGLE is an independently developed software library that BEAST uses to accelerate its core calculations. See here for more details about BEAGLE and installing it.
