BEAST 2

BEAST Mac Download with JRE

Downloading BEAST for Mac

The BEAST Download should be under way.

Once the file is downloaded, open the dmg file by double clicking it, and drag the BEAST folder into the Application folder in the window that pops up.

Start BEAST, BEAUti or the other programs by double clicking the icon in the BEAST directory in the Application folder.

You can also start them from a terminal using any of the scripts in /Applications/BEAST v2.5.0/bin.

Trouble shooting

BEAST does not start

If BEAST or BEAUti does not launch, this is probably due to Java not being installed, or the default version of Java is not Java 8 or higher.

To fix this, install the JDK (not the JRE) from Oracle, available here.

 

Download issues

If the download failed, you can always get it from the release page.
