UCEasy: a wrapper for the PHYLUCE software package

UCEasy is a wrapper to automate manual procedures of the PHYLUCE software package by abstracting the pipeline steps into 3 major commands and choosing sensible defaults for its command-line options, easing the execution and improving reproducibility.

At the moment, the only software package for analysing ultraconserved elements (UCEs) is PHYLUCE, but its execution can be quite challenging especially for non-computer experts. UCEasy is a convenient tool that automates the execution of common tasks for most types of UCE analysis, these being Quality Control, Assembly and UCE Processing.

Installation Guide


  • Python ^3.7
  • PHYLUCE ^1.6

See releases for pre-built binaries for Linux. Or install it from PyPI:

$ pip install uceasy

Then, make sure you have a working installation of PHYLUCE, check out the installation guide at PHYLUCE's documentation.


The operations Quality Control, Assembly and Phylogenomics represent the following workflow.

The colored boxes are UCEasy CLI commands.

$ uceasy quality-control
$ uceasy assembly
$ uceasy phylogenomics

Explore the options for these commands with the --help flag. For a guide of how to use UCEasy see: Tutorial.
