RaxmlGUI is a graphical user interface to RAxML, one of the most popular and widely used software for phylogenetic inference using maximum likelihood. Here we present raxmlGUI 2.0, a complete rewrite of the GUI which seamlessly integrates RAxML binaries for all major operating systems with an intuitive graphical front-end to set up and run phylogenetic analyses. Our program offers automated pipelines for analyses that require multiple successive calls of RAxML and built-in functions to concatenate alignment files while automatically specifying the appropriate partition settings. In addition to RAxML 8.x, raxmlGUI 2.0 also supports the new RAxML Next Generation. RaxmlGUI facilitates phylogenetic analyses by coupling an intuitive interface with the unmatched performance of RAxML. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
