[…] site duplication (tagctgat), consistent with integration mediated by the flanking is26 transposases of tn6029., we constructed a dated phylogeny of all available s. typhi 4.3.1 from nepal, using beast2 (fig 6, interactive version available at this analysis yielded a local substitution rate of 0.8 snps per genome per year (95% highest posterior […]

[…] was selected through the akaike information criterion (aic) with the software jmodeltest2 (darriba et al. 2012). the xml input files were generated with beauti 1.8.0, and the bi was performed with beast 1.8.0 (drummond et al. 2012). a yule speciation process, with a random starting tree, and relaxed molecular clock was used as tree priors. four markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) searches […]

[…] best fit in the sequence alignment; wag with site heterogeneity model gamma plus invariant sites (g+i). the bayesian analyses were carried out using markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) implemented in beast 1.7.5 package [95]. we ran four independent mcmc searches using distinct randomly generated starting trees. each run consisted of 50-million generations, and trees were sampled every 1,000 […]

[…] at 95% for each node., we used the bayesian binary mcmc (bbm) method implemented in rasp 3.0.0 to estimate the possible ancestral areas of triplostegia with the trees obtained from the intraspecific beast analysis (yu, harris, blair, & he, 2015). three geographical regions that represent the current distribution of triplostegia were defined: southwestern china (sw; east himalayas […]

[…] viruses. the respective nucleotide alignment was translated to protein level in the p and s-corresponding reading frames and bayesian trees were reconstructed for both protein sequences using beast (drummond et al., 2012) with the substitution model selected by prottest (abascal et al., 2005) and a yules speciation prior. lengths of the branches (measured as amino acid substitutions per […]
