[…] between treatment types using the minitab 17, coventry, uk. cv3 2te statistical package., phylogenetic analysis was performed as described previously7 using the phylogeny package phylip.16 clustalw was used to align multiple full‐length protein sequences, the distance measure between paired sequences was computed using prodist, and the umgma option in neighor was used to used […]

[…] [23]. evolutionary analyses of 16s rrna sequences were carried out using clustalw (version 2.1) to multiple aligned sequences. the maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree was then constructed using phylip (version 3.695) [24] with the bootstrap algorithm set to 500, and the phylogenetic tree was visualized using figtree (version 1.4.3) (, […]

[…] universally present among sequenced genomes was obtained using the muscle alignment program [41]. this sequence alignment was used to estimate genetic distances using protdist from j. felsenstein’s phylip phylogeny inference package program [42]. on the basis of these estimated distances, successive clustering of lineages was performed using a neighbor-joining algorithm reported by zhang […]

[…] atcc 17924), were used to construct the phylogenetic tree, along with mdr-shh02. briefly, multiple sequence alignment was performed using clustalw-2.1 (22). subsequently, the software package phylip 3.695 (, along with the bootstrap algorithm, was used to construct the maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree, and the phylogenetic tree […]

[…] all clusters were aligned with muscle (edgar, 2004) and then concatenated together. we performed phylogenetic analysis using a neighbor-joining algorithm with 1,000 bootstraps implemented in the phylip package., all reads with average quality values below 15 were discarded. the reads were truncated at 3′-end and first 25 bases were used for mapping. the reads were mapped to the m.
