[…] performing a blastx search in the ncbi genbank nr database and using the predicted protein of the query sequences under the thresholds of the highest bit-score and e-value (≤ 1e-03)., we constructed ksnp trees, genome-wide trees, and pan-genome trees using whole-genome sequence data of 106 s. suis and other streptococcus spp. strains (fig. 1 and supplementary figs. s1–s3, supplementary material […]

[…] 2.1 (39) and plasmidfinder 1.3 (65). additional novel plasmid replicons from the present study were included in the analysis as well., a phylogenetic tree was inferred from snps identified by ksnp v 3.0 (30) by using a k-mer length of 19 nucleotides and a requirement that at least 80% of the genomes (i.e., 303 genomes) have a nucleotide at a given snp position in order for the snp […]
