From the developer:
MEGA is an integrated tool for conducting automatic and manual alignment, inferring phylogenetic trees, mining web-based databases, estimating rates of molecular evolution, inferring ancestral sequences, and testing evolutionary hypotheses. The objective of the MEGA software has been to provide tools for exploring, discovering, and analyzing DNA and protein sequences from an evolutionary perspective. The first version was developed for the limited computational resources that were available on the average personal computer in early 1990s. MEGA1 made many methods of evolutionary analysis easily accessible to the scientific community for research and education.
