BEAST (Bayesian Evolutionary Analysis by Sampling Trees) is software for Bayesian analysis of molecular sequences using a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm. A rewrite of the original BEAST package (BEAST 1 series) appears as BEAST 2.  A comparison table between BEAST 1 and BEAST 2 is available on the BEAST 2 site.

See the BEAST Software Versions page for a list of WestGrid systems on which BEAST 1 and BEAST 2 have been installed.
