Architrypethelium murisporum (Ascomycota, Trypetheliaceae), a remarkable new lichen species from Thailand challenging ascospore septation as an indicator of phylogenetic relationships

PMCID: 5958175
PMID: 29780270
DOI: 10.3897/mycokeys.25.23836

[…] oups to Architrypethelium () and two taxa of Bathelium madreporiforme were used as the outgroup. The DNA datasets (mtSSU and nuLSU) were aligned separately using MUSCLE () and improved manually using MEGA v.7 (). The nucleotide substitution model for maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference (BI) analyses was chosen using jModelTest v.2.1.4 () with the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC). The […]


Sporulation specific cell division defects in ylmE mutants of Streptomyces coelicolor are rescued by additional deletion of ylmD

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5943314
PMID: 29743540
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25782-1
call_split See protocol

[…] search the NCBI database ( using BLASTP against the non-redundant protein sequence database. Alignment of YlmD and YlmE was generated using ClustalW followed by manual editing in MEGA v. 4.0. The neighbour-joining trees were generated with default parameters settings as implemented in MEGA v. 4.0. The maximum-likelihood trees were made using the best fit models predicted by ME […]


Microbial community analysis and biodeterioration of waterlogged archaeological wood from the Nanhai No. 1 shipwreck during storage

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5940862
PMID: 29740020
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25484-8

[…] .cgi) and the GenBank database. Each isolate was compared against known taxa present in the database. Phylogenetic analyses were conducted using the Molecular Evolutionary Genetics Analysis software (MEGA, v. 6.06) using the neighbour-joining method. Confidence in tree topology was estimated using the bootstrap method (1,000 bootstrap replicates). […]


Widespread plant specialization in the polyphagous planthopper Hyalesthes obsoletus (Cixiidae), a major vector of stolbur phytoplasma: Evidence of cryptic speciation

PLoS One
PMCID: 5940214
PMID: 29738577
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196969

[…] s performed on an ABI Prism 3700 automated sequencer (Macrogen Inc., Seoul, South Korea). Sequences were edited using FinchTV v.1.4.0 ( and aligned with ClustalW [] within the MEGA v.5.2 software []. Whenever possible, six specimens per each H. obsoletus population were genotyped for mitochondrial markers, (). The nomenclature of newly identified haplotypes followed the des […]


Multilevel social structure and diet shape the gut microbiota of the gelada monkey, the only grazing primate

PMCID: 5935910
PMID: 29729671
DOI: 10.1186/s40168-018-0468-6

[…] in the “GUniFrac” package []. For constructing the phylogenies upon which the Unifrac distances were based, sequences were aligned using MUSCLE [] and a neighbor joining tree [] was constructed using MEGA v7.0.26 []. The phylogeny of OTUs classified to the phylum Fibrobacteres was constructed in the same fashion. Metagenomes were predicted using Phylogenetic Investigation of Communities by Reconst […]


Eight new Arthrinium species from China

PMCID: 5945706
PMID: 29755262
DOI: 10.3897/mycokeys.34.24221
call_split See protocol

[…] Sequences generated from the forward and reverse primers were used to obtain consensus sequences using MEGA v. 6.0 (). The concatenated tree was inferred based ITS, TUB2 and TEF1 sequences (Figure ) using Bayesian and Maximum-likelihood analyses. Sequences were aligned using an online version of MAFFT […]
