Automated analysis of phylogenetic trees is far more complex than analysis of, for example, pairwise similarities such as calculated by BLAST or PSI-BLAST. For the phylome inference package "PhyloGenie" to be regarded as useful, there has to be a way to separate relevant from irrelevant trees for the question at hand. PHAT (Phylome Analysis Tool) is a tool that filters a set of Newick trees (New Hampshire Bracket Format) for those corresponding to topological selection criteria. Careful choice of the selection criteria can greatly reduce the number of trees that have to be manually examined.
