This is version 1.4 of bms_runner, released in March 2011 (with an update to the manual in August 2012). bms_runner is a script written by Daniel Barker and Mark Pagel. bms_runner uses the separate program BayesTraits (http://www.evolution.reading.ac.uk) to predict functional links among genes, on the basis of correlated gain and loss of genes from species' genomes. bms_runner accompanies Barker, Meade and Pagel (2007, Bioinformatics 23:14-20, doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btl558).
