[…] To visualize the phylogenetic position of the 100 most abundant OTUs in the diatom phylogeny, a constraint phylogeny was carried out as explained in Rimet et al. []. Briefly, turtles OTU sequences were aligned with all the rbcL sequences in the R-Syst::diatom library using Muscle [] in Seaview []. The best substitution model was then tested in MEGA7 []. A constraint phylogeny was then calculated in raxmlGUI [] using the fast tree search option. The constraint sequences were the turtle OTUs sequences and the shortest sequences of R-Syst::diatom library. A tree was drawn using the online tool iTOL [] ( second phylogeny was carried out on Nitzschia inconspicua sequences from the R-Syst::diatom library and their neighbor OTU in the raxmlGUI software using the maximum likelihood and the thorough bootstrap option (see former section). A phylogeny was drawn using Mega7 []. […]
