Multiple origins of green blood in New Guinea lizards

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5955620
PMID: 29774232
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aao5017

[…] ng trees as input and has been shown to be robust to effects of both incorrectly estimated gene trees and gene tree heterogeneity (). Extended majority-rule consensus (MRE) trees were estimated using sumtrees in DendroPy v3.2 (). After visually confirming species monophyly and topological concordance among data sets, we elected to proceed with the ONE and TWO data sets for all subsequent analyses […]


Structural patterns of selection and diversity for Plasmodium vivax antigens DBP and AMA1

Malar J
PMCID: 5930944
PMID: 29720179
DOI: 10.1186/s12936-018-2324-3
call_split See protocol

[…] The DendroPy Python library [] was used to calculate Tajima’s D, Watterson’s Theta, mean pairwise differences and nucleotide diversity. Haplotype diversity was calculated using:H=nn-11-∑ixi2where xi is th […]


Sharing of photobionts in sympatric populations of Thamnolia and Cetraria lichens: evidence from high throughput sequencing

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5849601
PMID: 29535321
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22470-y

[…] model for sequence evolution using the jModelTest. The 1000 trees with the best likelihood score were compiled in one phylogeny that represents the 50% majority-rule consensus tree using the program SumTrees.Thamnolia and Cetraria are highly divergent mycobiont genera from Lecanoromycetes. Therefore we performed a separate phylogeny for samples of each genus based on the mycobiont Sanger sequence […]


Multiple origins of downy mildews and mito nuclear discordance within the paraphyletic genus Phytophthora

PLoS One
PMCID: 5846723
PMID: 29529094
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192502

[…] um likelihood (ML) tree was inferred using the PartitionFinder scheme () employing 200 best-tree searches in the program Garli 2.01 [], with 1000 bootstrap replications providing support, added using []. A Bayesian likelihood consensus tree was inferred with MrBayes 3.2.6 [], using the closest approximation of the best PartitionFinder scheme and running generations until the standard d […]


Proteome wide mapping of immune features onto Plasmodium protein three dimensional structures

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5847524
PMID: 29531293
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22592-3

[…] ther a predefined or user-defined function, either with or without some level of spatial averaging. The package makes use of the BioPython Bio.PDB module for PDB file parsing and manipulation and the DendroPy package for calculation of Tajima’s D. The source code is available at For all structural mapping work using BioStructMap, protein chains were treat […]


The genomic underpinnings of eukaryotic virus taxonomy: creating a sequence based framework for family level virus classification

PMCID: 5819261
PMID: 29458427
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0422-7

[…] dendrogram sample. The process was repeated 100 times to obtain a distribution of bootstrap dendrograms. We then computed bootstrap support for branches on the best-estimate UPGMA dendrogram by using SumTrees [] based on the obtained dendrogram distribution.It is possible that several low bootstrapped support values might be caused by empty profile sampling—i.e. all elements in the bootstrapped si […]
