Sharing your methods

It's often not trivial to reproduce an alignment or a tree. There are just too many pieces of software and too many options. I have often had diffculty reproducing trees based on the information provided. An interesting option would be to have data and method archived together. This would allow easy verification.

One model might be RunMyCode, a cloud-based platform that enables open sharing of code and data that underlies it:
