[…] cluster that contained an rdp sequence., to produce a tree that only contained the otus from the de novo datasets, all other otus were pruned from the tree while preserving the branch lengths, using clann (creevey and mcinerney, ); this tree was visualized using itol (letunic and bork, ) and is shown in fig. . a second phylogeny of only the bacteriodetes, containing the otus from both the de […]

[…] trees, was constructed on the basis of the five individual gene phylogenies by means of matrix representation using parsimony (mrp) method (loomis and smith, ; baum, ; ragan, ) as implemented in clann 3.2.3 (creevey and mcinerney, ) setting parameters by default., total lipids were extracted with chloroform/methanol using the extraction method described by bligh and dyer (), as modified […]

[…] phylogenetic tree is always generated and the corresponding newick tree file saved, a robust tree for the relationship of the species analyzed could be easily created using applications such as clann [], which would then allow for the construction of supertrees from partially overlapping species datasets. moreover, adops projects always provide the nucleotide and protein sequences in fasta […]

[…] for single-copy and multicopy gene phylogenies by prottest. download table¬†s2, docx file, 0.01 mb., all 2,280 orthologous single-copy gene phylogenies (35,622 genes in total) were used as input for clann (), which implements a matrix representation using parsimony (mrp) method to determine consensus phylogeny for many source phylogenies with overlapping taxa or missing taxa. an mrp supertree […]

[…] () is the easiest way to generate such binary matrix. however, it can be prepared even manually using the text¬†editor., the average consensus tables are calculated following the default settings of clann version 4.1.5 ( (; ; ) for the avcon command with the branch lengths of the all input trees assigned to unity () and also used as future inputs for paup* […]

[…] via 100 bootstrap replicates. this set of analyses were performed using raxml instead of phyml because inclusion of premature stop residues are forbidden in phyml., supertrees were generated using clann (ver. 3.2.3) (; ) with six total input trees: three based on ca sequence and three based on gag (- p12) sequence. these ca and gag inputs include two ml phylogenies, one generated using […]
