Abstract

The Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis (MEGA) software enables comparative analysis of molecular sequences in phylogenetics and evolutionary medicine. Here, we introduce the macOS version of the MEGA software. This new version eliminates the need for virtualization and emulation programs previously required to use MEGA on Apple computers. MEGA for macOS utilizes memory and computing resources efficiently for conducting evolutionary analyses on Apple computers. It has a native Cocoa graphical user interface that is programmed to provide a consistent user experience across macOS, Windows, and Linux. MEGA for macOS is available from www.megasoftware.net free of charge.
