    3232  * The obvious example are branch lengths 
    3333  * But we usually also have (possibly multiple) support values associated with tree branches

     37In a white board exercise, we identified plausible input and output data types for phyloinformatic webservices. Plausibility is defined by our being able to imagine [https://www.nescent.org/wg_evoinfo/PhyloWS#Use_Cases use cases] (no time line for implementation implied, the goal here is to come up with interfaces)

     39=== Inputs === 
     40 * '''One Tree''' - exactly one tree, which might function as a query topology, as an input for topology metric calculations, or as something for which associated data (matrices) and metadata might be retrieved 
     41 * '''Pair of Trees''' - exactly two trees, which function as inputs for tree-to-tree distance calculations 
     42 * '''Set of Trees''' - input for consensus calculations, or as query topologies 
     43 * '''One OTU''' - exactly one OTU for which associated data (trees or matrices that contain it) and metadata might be retrieved 
     44 * '''Pair of OTUs''' - exactly two OTUs, as input for topological queries (MRCA) and calculations (patristic distance) 
     45 * '''Set of OTUs''' - input for topological queries (MRCA) and for which data (trees or matrices that contain them) and metadata might be retrieved 
     46 * '''One Node''' - input for tree traversal operations (parent, children) and for which metadata might be retrieved 
     47 * '''Pair of Nodes''' - input for topological queries (MRCA) and calculations (patristic distance) 
     48 * '''Set of Nodes''' - input for topological queries (MRCA) 
     49 * '''One character''' - exactly one character (matrix column) for which calculations are performed (variability) and metadata is retrieved
