PMCID: 5751821
PMID: 29295716
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-017-2577-7

[…] submitted to the genbank database (ncbi) and assigned specific accession numbers (mf496203 and mf496204; mf693831–mf693833)., bayesian inference (bi) and monte carlo markov chain (mcmc) analysis in mrbayes v.3.2.3 [62] were used for phylogenetic analysis. akaike information criteria (aic) test in jmodeltest v.2.1.7 [63] was used to evaluate the likelihood parameters set for bi analysis. […]

PMID: 29348650
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19620-7

[…] substitution models (using 3 substitution schemes) were compared with jmodeltest 265 and best-fit models selected based on the akaike information criterion. bayesian analyses were performed using mrbayes 366. two parallel metropolis-coupled markov chain monte carlo searches, each with four chains (3 ‘heated’), were run for 2 × 106 generations, sampling trees and parameters every 100 […]

[…] using the iqtree multicore v.1.5.3 with jtt + g4 model [22]. branch supports were assessed by bootstrapping with 1,000 standard replicates. bayesian inference of phylogeny was conducted using mrbayes 3.2.6 with analysis run for 1 million generations, sampling every 100th of them [23]. the model of site heterogeneity was set based on iqtree analyses (g4), while the optimal model of amino […]

[…] generations, sampling every 100th of them [23]. the model of site heterogeneity was set based on iqtree analyses (g4), while the optimal model of amino acid substitutions (jones) was found by mrbayes using mixed amino acid model prior., leishmania mexicana (isolate mnyc/bz/62/m379) culture was maintained in m199 medium (sigma-aldrich, st. louis, usa) supplemented with 2 μg/ml biopterin […]

[…] in the genbank database of ncbi ( and mycobank (, and aligned using clustal_x v.1.8139. bayesian inference of the phylogeny was performed in mrbayes version 3.2.140, with permutations allowed until a frequency of division ≤0.01 was reached. the general time-reversible (gtr) substitution model was used. figtree version 1.4.241 was used […]
