Complex signatures of genomic variation of two non model marine species in a homogeneous environment

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5944137
PMID: 29743012
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4721-y

[…] ion2 is not capable of calculating diversity indices such as Tajima’s π and Watterson’s θW, total heterozygosity was calculated from the GenePop file used to detect outliers (see section below) using Genodive [].To assess the effects of population-specific resampling on intraspecific variation, we compared the frequencies of SNPs calculated by both Popoolation and Popoolation2. As allele frequenci […]


Mind the gut: genomic insights to population divergence and gut microbial composition of two marine keystone species

PMCID: 5932900
PMID: 29720271
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0467-7

[…] We employed the AMOVA [] implemented in GenoDive v.2.0 to estimate overall and pairwise levels of genetic divergence as FST. We assumed an infinite alleles model [] and employed 999 permutations to estimate the probability of homogeneity. I […]


Meta populational demes constitute a reservoir for large MHC allele diversity in wild house mice (Mus musculus)

Front Zool
PMCID: 5910556
PMID: 29721030
DOI: 10.1186/s12983-018-0266-9

[…] Observed and expected heterozygosities for microsatellites were calculated using MSA version 4.05 [] and for MHC alleles using GENODIVE []. Average relatedness was determined with the program COANCESTRY []. To investigate the structure between and within the farms we used the software STRUCTURE [] for the microsatellite data. […]


Is the Success of Plant Invasions the Result of Rapid Adaptive Evolution in Seed Traits? Evidence from a Latitudinal Rainfall Gradient

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5835042
PMID: 29535741
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00208
call_split See protocol

[…] whether the studied populations are formed by few successful clonal lineages or by several multi-locus lineages, we estimated the extent of clonal reproduction in our AFLP dataset using the software GenoDive 2.0b17 (). We choose GenoDive because it has been extensively employed to estimate clonal diversity on marine organisms (e.g., ) and plants (e.g., ; ) using AFLP markers. Briefly, GenoDive us […]


Genetic and morphological support for possible sympatric origin of fish from subterranean habitats

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5811452
PMID: 29440653

[…] al. In addition, two supplementary K-means clustering analyses, the Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC; Schwarz) and the Calinski–Harabasz pseudo-F-statistic, were performed on individuals using the GENODIVE v.2.0b25 program. For these K-mean clustering analyses, a simulated annealing method was used, where the optimal K value was determined via checking K values ranging from 1 to 5 for 5,000 per […]


From conservation genetics to conservation genomics: a genome wide assessment of blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus) in Australian feeding aggregations

R Soc Open Sci
PMCID: 5792883
PMID: 29410806
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.170925

[…] er chance of a tree including informative variables (i.e. loci under selection) when the dataset has relatively few such variables. Missing data were imputed—which is a requirement of the analysis—in GENODIVE 2.0b27 [] by conservatively (i.e. expected to find fewer loci putatively under selection) drawing alleles from the allele frequency distribution of the entire dataset rather than for each fee […]
