Genomic evolution of Staphylococcus aureus isolates colonizing the nares and progressing to bacteremia

PLoS One
PMCID: 5933776
PMID: 29723202
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195860
call_split See protocol

[…] ce alignment (>2.8 million positions) of all included genomic sequences [], from which an approximately-maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree was generated using FastTree v2.1.10 [] and displayed with Dendroscope v3.5.9 []. Because no full-length, polished genomic sequences of USA100 were available, we corroborated results by generating trees using as references concatenated contigs USA100 isolate […]


Heavy Metal Susceptibility of Escherichia coli Isolated from Urine Samples from Sweden, Germany, and Spain

Antimicrob Agents Chemother
PMCID: 5923176
PMID: 29530862
DOI: 10.1128/AAC.00209-18

[…] sed on concatenated sequences for arsRBC and rMLST in accordance with the procedure described for the rMLST tree described above. Both trees were compared after construction of a tanglegram by use of Dendroscope software (v3.5.9; […]


Identification of two different chemosensory pathways in representatives of the genus Halomonas

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5907407
PMID: 29669514
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4655-4

[…] were performed with the maximum likelihood package PhyML3 []. All sequences were scanned for motifs in using PROSITE and PFAM as databases.Trees were visualized with Dendroscope v3.2.10 [] and final tree editing was done using iTOL []. […]


Horizontal antimicrobial resistance transfer drives epidemics of multiple Shigella species

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5899146
PMID: 29654279
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03949-8

[…] Comparative phylogenetics of pKSR100 with whole-genome phylogenies was conducted within Dendroscope. The whole-genome phylogenies were (from top to bottom): a Bayesian-inferred phylogenetic tree of S. flexneri 3a based on 1243 variable sites (from ref. ); the tree presented in Fig.  for […]


Pervasive Chimerism in the Replication Associated Proteins of Uncultured Single Stranded DNA Viruses

PMCID: 5923481
PMID: 29642587
DOI: 10.3390/v10040187

[…] rotein sequences is essential. We used two complementary approaches to detect possible recombination in Rep proteins. First, we generated a tanglegram of the Rep endonuclease and helicase trees using Dendroscope v3 []. Sequences or sequence groups whose positions differed in both trees were marked as possible recombinants. Second, to substantiate the results, we performed an all-against-all compar […]


Analysis of DNAs associated with coconut foliar decay disease implicates a unique single stranded DNA virus representing a new taxon

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5890292
PMID: 29632309
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23739-y

[…] the GTR + G + I substitution model, chosen after model test in Mega7. BBTV DNA-R (GenBank acc. no. S56276) served to root the tree, and nodes with less than 70% bootstrap support were collapsed using Dendroscope, v3.5.8. The final graphics were done in FigTree v1.4.3. ( A recombination analysis was carried out using the recombination detection package RD […]
