BEAST is a cross-platform program for Bayesian inference using MCMC of molecular sequences. It is entirely orientated towards rooted, time-measured phylogenies inferred using strict or relaxed molecular clock models. It can be used as a method of reconstructing phylogenies but is also a framework for testing evolutionary hypotheses without conditioning on a single tree topology.

Mounting volumes between the container and your machine
To access files from your machine within the beast2 container you’ll have to mount them using the
-v external/path:internal/path option.
docker run -v ~/Documents/Data:/Data ghcr.io/autamus/beast2 beast2 /Data/myData.csv
which will mount the
~/Documents/Data directory on your computer to the
/Data directory within the container.
If you’re looking to use this container in an HPC environment we recommend using Singularity-HPC to use the container just as any other module on the cluster. Check out the SHPC beast2 container here.
