[…] a consistent phylogenetic signal could be revealed by reducing the impact of noise, the same phylogenetic analyses were carried out, but this time after treatment of the dataset 1 with the program aliscore. the new lsu rrna alignment (dataset 1bis) displayed 155 (37.8%) ‘noisy’ sites that were filtered out and did not impact on the selected model of evolution (k2p + γ with a lnl of −1735.6). […]

[…] the programs bioedit (clustalw) and muscle v.3.6 were used for sequence alignment, followed by a control for ambiguous alignment positions using aliscore v.0.2 under default settings [46]. aliscore checks for random sequence similarity using mcmc and a sliding windows approach. under this regime, similarity profiles based on pairwise comparisons of sequences were calculated. ambiguous […]

[…] for gap opening and gap extension. the length of the resulting alignment was 986 bp. similar to the procedure for the complete alignment, the 28sr rna fragment was also subjected to an analysis with aliscore (see below)., identification of ambiguous and noisy alignment positions of the complete alignment and of the 28s partition was achieved with aliscore[15]. noisy positions contain nucleotide […]
