MacClade in pipelines

PMCID: 5465370
PMID: 28580942
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15740

[…] to obtain individual env sequences that proportionately represent those virions circulating in vivo., all sequence alignments and phylogenetic trees were performed in clustalw with manual editing in macclade. each low-diversity lineage was compared with a mathematical model of viral diversification overtime to identify all transmitted/founder lineages, as previously described in ref. . […]

PMID: 26849226
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0148934

[…] signed gene pairs in three or more genomes were coded as binary characters using mesquite 3.04 []. losses of ancestral gene pairs were identified by tracing these characters on tree topologies with macclade 4.08 [] under the dollo principle of parsimony., the genbank accession numbers of the 71chloroplast genomes that were used to generate the analyzed amino acid and nucleotide data sets […]

[…] alignments were performed with the online version of mafft v.6.0 (katoh & toh, ). because there was little difference between l‐ins‐i strategy and q‐ins‐i strategy, we chose the former one. macclade v.4.06 (maddison & maddison, ) was used to check for premature stop codons in protein‐coding genes. we used the online version of gblocks v.0.91b (castresana, ) to identify positions […]

[…] codes corporation, ann arbor, mi usa). sequences were aligned by eye in sequencher 4.7 (gene codes corporation), and the number of haplotypes was determined using the filter redundant taxa option in macclade 4.08 []. golden eagle haplotypes from other studies in north america [,] were downloaded from genbank (, the number of alleles, observed and expected […]

[…] warrington, england). raw sequence chromatograms were edited using sequencher™ v. 4.8 (genes codes corporation, ann arbor, mi), aligned automatically in mafft v. 7 (its2) () or manually (coi) using macclade v. 4.06 (). sequence similarities were compared with those available (october 14, 2014) in genbank using basic local alignment search tool (blast) ( […]

[…] occurred on the internal branches of lineages formed during the evolution of denv, particularly in png, we mapped changes onto the ml phylogenetic tree using a parsimony-based method implemented in macclade 4.08 []., a serum microneutralization (mn) assay was used to measure serum anti-denv antibodies []. this approach was selected to allow simultaneous assessment of antibody to all four denv […]

[…] smooth skyride plot gaussian markov random field (gmrf), nonparametric bayesian skyline plot (bsp), and implementing a relaxed molecular clock model under the conditions described above., the macclade version 4 program (sinauer associates, sunderland, ma) was used to investigate the viral gene in/out flow among distinct hav subpopulations within different geographic areas corresponding […]

[…] dna data to be closely related to, and diverge immediately prior to, ophrys, namely steveniella, neotinea and orchis (; )., morphological data were derived from numerous sources and were input into macclade v4.05 (). when compiling our character list (), characters were, where feasible, derived from the literature and supplemented with original observations by the present authors.

[…] ., to infer the phylogenetic placement of auritella species, we assembled separate alignments of 37 28s and 27 rpb2 dna sequences from on-going and much more taxonomically inclusive gene datasets in macclade v4.08a (), including two 28s sequences (jq657775, jq657772) produced from auritella species as “inocybe” by , and one 28s sequence (fr731774) from a caesalpinoid (fabaceae) ectomycorrhiza () […]
