We are happy to announce that ggtree supports interactive tree annotation/manipulation by implementing an identify method. Users can click on a node to highlight a clade, to label or rotate it etc.

Here is an example of highlighting clades using geom_hilight with identify:

Here is another example of using emojifont to label clades.

Interactive tree manipulation, e.g. rotating clades, is also possible.

The videos are also available in youku (优酷), see http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTYyMzgyODYyOA, http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTYyNDIzODA0NA and http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTYyMzgyODg2OA.
