graphlan [-h] [--format ['output_image_format']] [--warnings WARNINGS] [--positions POSITIONS] [--dpi image_dpi] [--size image_size] [--pad pad_in] [--external_legends] [-v] input_tree output_image


GraPhlAn is a software tool for producing high-quality circular representations of taxonomic and phylogenetic trees. It focuses on concise, integrative, informative, and publication-ready representations of phylogenetically- and taxonomically-driven investigation.

--dpi image_dpi
the dpi of the output image for non vectorial formats
--size image_size
the size of the output image (in inches, default 7.0)
--pad pad_in
the distance between the most external graphical element and the border of the image
