BUCKy in pipeline

PMCID: 4868114
PMID: 26893301
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msw038

[…] as a preprocessing step, with the bins subsequently used as input for coalescent species tree estimation; binning is shown to reduce run times, and to increase accuracy in the presence of ils ()., bucky (; ) uses a bayesian probabilistic framework to estimate a gene-to-tree map that assigns each gene to one of the (2n − 3)!! possible unrooted trees on n taxa (). a dirichlet process prior (; ) […]

[…] such as muscle and mesenchyme [, ]., localized maternal factors that assemble the germ plasm have been identified in other animals, such as oskar of d. melanogaster [–], pgls of c. elegans [], bucky ball of zebrafish [] and xpat of x. laevis []. these factors function to assemble other maternal mrnas and proteins in the germ plasm, and are essential for pgc formation. in this sense, popk-1 […]

[…] other chemistries (), are consistently found to have high amorphous limits. besides nitrides, c and si are examples where a strong preference for covalently bonded structures leads to a high limit. bucky-ball c60, for instance, a famous carbon allotrope, which is a molecular conformation that is above the ground-state graphite by almost half an electron volt per carbon atom (), is within […]

[…] be concatenated into a supermatrix or used for gene‐tree‐based methods of phylogenetic reconstruction, including astral‐iii (mirarab et al., ; zhang et al., ), astrid (vachaspati and warnow, ), and bucky (larget et al., ). this is especially useful with exon capture and hyb‐seq approaches, because loci are likely to be long enough to contain many variable sites and produce gene trees with high […]

[…] into quartets of species. these quartet-based methods (e.g., the summary method accurate species tree algorithm (astral) [,,], the site-based method svdquartets [], and a hybrid method called bucky–quartet []) rely on the fact that, for a quartet of species, where only three unrooted tree topologies are possible, the species tree topology has the highest probability of occurring […]
