[…] rovided best results was used in average RF distance calculations. For alignment-free methods, Average Common Substring(ACS) length-based distance and Lempel-Ziv(LZ) distance were calculated using ‘decaf+py’ package , followed by tree inference using ‘neighbor’ program of PHYLIP package. All the settings and implementations used have been summarized in , and more details on commands is provided […]
