Molecular and Cytogenetic Characterization of Wild Musa Species

PLoS One
PMCID: 4529165
PMID: 26252482
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0134096
call_split See protocol

[…] using Staden Package []. Sequence boundaries of the spacers were assessed and phylogenetic relationships analysis was performed according to Hřibová et al. []. Sequence diversity was identified using DnaSAM program [] with 1000 simulations. SplitsTree4 v4.1.11 [] was used to construct phylograms based on the Jukes-Cantor model. Non-parametric bootstrapping with 1000 pseudoreplicates was performed […]


Ecological Overlap and Horizontal Gene Transfer in Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4453061
PMID: 25888688
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evv066

[…] by the gene being present at the end of an assembled contiguous sequence. For each of these core genes, we calculated the Watterson’s estimator of population mutation rate () and Tajima’s D () using DnaSAM (). The overall distribution of estimators for each gene and each species were compared using a Mann–Whitney U test (Wilcoxon’s rank sum test). […]


Mapping by Sequencing Identifies HvPHYTOCHROME C as a Candidate Gene for the early maturity 5 Locus Modulating the Circadian Clock and Photoperiodic Flowering in Barley

PMCID: 4174949
PMID: 24996910
DOI: 10.1534/genetics.114.165613

[…] r for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) GenBank (DQ201145, DQ201146, and DQ238106). Haplotype analysis was performed as described in . Nucleotide diversity π was calculated for the coding region using DnaSAM v. 20100621 (). […]


Detecting Selection in the Blue Crab, Callinectes sapidus, Using DNA Sequence Data from Multiple Nuclear Protein Coding Genes

PLoS One
PMCID: 4045945
PMID: 24896825
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0099081

[…] lity tests, departures from neutral expectations were detected with Tajima's D , Fay and Wu's normalized H , and the Ewens-Watterson EW homozygosity test . Significance of all tests was determined in DnaSAM using 103 simulations that assumed a neutral model and no recombination. Because D, H, and EW differ in their sensitivities to demographic history, background selection, and recombination, the […]


Selection on Plant Male Function Genes Identifies Candidates for Reproductive Isolation of Yellow Monkeyflowers

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 3854799
PMID: 24339787
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1003965

[…] istical support for these cutoffs we generated 10,000 replicate datasets for each PTP in the upper and lower 2.5% tails of the distribution under a neutral model in the MS program implemented in the DNAsam computer package with default simulation parameters . P-values were calculated for each of these loci as the proportion of 10,000 coalescent simulations with a Tajima's D value more extreme tha […]


Contrasting patterns of nucleotide diversity for four conifers of Alpine European forests

Evol Appl
PMCID: 3492901
PMID: 23144662
DOI: 10.1111/j.1752-4571.2012.00256.x

[…] Aligned sequences were analyzed with the DNA Sequence Analysis and Manipulation (DnaSAM) program (). Sites with missing data, with indels, or that violated the infinite sites mutational model were not included in the analysis. For each gene, […]
