This is the second introductory tutorial to BEAST. Here we will continue the analysis from the first tutorial looking at the output, diagnosing problems and summarising the results. This tutorial will introduce some of the utilities packaged with BEAST, logcombiner and treeannotator, as well as the external applications, Tracer and FigTree.

In the first introductory tutorial we looked at importing data into BEAUti, setting up a model and analysis, and running this analysis in BEAST.
