Characterization of phenotypic variation and genome aberrations observed among Phytophthora ramorum isolates from diverse hosts

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5932867
PMID: 29720102
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4709-7

[…] led based on base-pair sizes and calibration with nine samples within this set that were previously analyzed by another lab. Allele calls were confirmed by the second analysis. Data were formatted in GenAlEx format (Excel) and imported into the R statistical program []. To visualize the relationships among multilocus genotypes (MLGs), minimum spanning network based on Bruvo’s distance [] was const […]


Diversity and population structure of red rice germplasm in Bangladesh

PLoS One
PMCID: 5931645
PMID: 29718936
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196096
call_split See protocol

[…] s (PCA) analysis was conducted also using the STRUCTURE software. In order to summarize the major patterns of variation within the multi-locus dataset, an analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) using GenAlEx V6.5 [] was also performed. […]


Multiplicity and molecular epidemiology of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum infections in East Africa

Malar J
PMCID: 5932820
PMID: 29720181
DOI: 10.1186/s12936-018-2337-y

[…] SP v5 []. The Nei’s unbiased expected heterozygosity (He) was calculated as a measure of overall genetic diversity for each genotype method []. Analysis of Molecular Variance (AMOVA) was conducted by GenAlEx 6.5 to estimate sequences variation within- and between infections []. The MEGA v7 was used to create a UPGMA phylogenetic tree []. The tree was annotated using the online tool iTOL (interacti […]


Beaver Fever: Whole Genome Characterization of Waterborne Outbreak and Sporadic Isolates To Study the Zoonotic Transmission of Giardiasis

PMCID: 5917422
PMID: 29695621
DOI: 10.1128/mSphere.00090-18
call_split See protocol

[…] s were also inferred using SplitsTree, and a Φ-test was conducted to estimate the level of recombination (). The correlation between genetic and geographic distances was established using MEGA () and GenAlEx (). […]


Genetic diversity in the endangered terrestrial orchid Cypripedium japonicum in East Asia: Insights into population history and implications for conservation

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5915404
PMID: 29691494
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24912-z
call_split See protocol

[…] ence of individuals within populations, populations within regions (countries), and regions on the observed genetic variation, we conducted a hierarchical analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) using GenAlEx 6.5. To determine the relative importance of gene flow and RGD at regional scale, we conducted a correlation analysis between pairwise genetic distances and linear geographic distances (km) an […]


Population structure, genetic diversity and downy mildew resistance among Ocimum species germplasm

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 5914031
PMID: 29685108
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-018-1284-7

[…] The integrity of clusters derived from population structure was further investigated by performing an analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) using GenAlEx 6.501 software []. A Nei [] genetic distance matrix was first calculated using the binary genotype matrix previously described for the model-based clustering analyses. Two separate AMOVA were […]
