[…] to assess the probability of the monophyletic relationships between metasterkiella koreana and the genus sterkiella, the approximately unbiased (au) test was performed in consel v. 0.1j [, ]. steps were as described in shazib et al. []. two constrained ml analyses were carried out, i.e., (i) monophyly of m. koreana and sterkiella cavicola, and (ii) monophyly of m. […]

[…] monophyly of recipient genes, and when these were paraphyletic (2205 trees, 17.48%), we tested for the likelihood of an alternative tree with recipients consolidated into one clade. for this we used consel () with the approximately unbiased test and the multi-scale bootstrap technique. of the reconfigured trees, 829 (37.6%) were not significantly less likely than the original tree (approximately […]

[…] the newick utilities package. for each alignment tested, per-site maximum likelihood was calculated for both hypothesis trees with raxml 8.0.9, using the option ‘–f g’, and the protgammalg model. consel 0.20 was then used to perform approximately unbiased tests, using default settings., a reference set of 59 highly conserved, low- or single-copy genes were used both as taxonomic markers […]

[…] l27-1 and l27-2., treepuzzling: support for the l27 and pdz domains was further evaluated by generating a 95% confidence set of trees based on the expected likelihood weight method as implemented in consel []. tree-puzzle [] was used to sample 50,000 trees, whose likelihoods were assessed using the jtt model with 4 gamma rate categories. a consensus network was constructed from the l27 […]

[…] v2.75 ( the p-values for different tests including approximately unbiased (au) (), kishino-hasegawa (kh) (), and shimodaira-hasegawa (sh) () tests were calculated using consel () to indicate the likelihood of different tree topologies. moreover, geneconv () was also applied to detect possible gene conversion events with default parameters except for 100,000 […]

[…] dataset. we implemented ml analyses for the four datasets with raxml 7.2.6 under the best fit model for 500 and 1,000 bootstrap replicates. to evaluate the confidence of all topology hypotheses, consel was used to implement the au test, the shimodaira-hasegawa (wsh) test, the kishino-hasegawa (kh) test and the bootstrap probability (bp) test after the per site log-likelihoods […]
