PMID: 29420542

[…] down without further links of the parasites to the remaining hosts. we built and obtained indexes of the network structure on the r programming environment [] using the igraph [], bipartite [], and picante [] packages. the resilience of the networks of each genus and stage of ticks after recursive removal of host nodes was evaluated with the package netswan for r []. visualization […]

[…] performed in a pair-wise fashion between samples using bonferroni correction on p-values., data analysis was performed using r statistical software [] with the packages vegan [], phyloseq [] and picante []. furthermore, deseq2 [] was used to highlight otus differentially present among different instars of c. capitata, and when collected from different host fruits., clustering produced 3,169 […]

[…] data. all p values were adjusted for multiple comparisons with the false discovery rate (fdr) correction using the benjamini-hochberg method []. we made use of the r packages vegan v2.3-5 [], picante v1.6-2 [], and the bioconductor package phyloseq v1.14 []., detailed information regarding isolation, sequencing, and taxonomic assignment of bacteria isolates is available in additional file […]

[…] of phylogenetic signal. k values closer to zero correspond to a random or convergent pattern of evolution, while k values greater than 1 indicate strong phylogenetic signal. we used the r package ‘picante’ () to compute k and the significance test. to test the possible decrease of power or the randomization test due to the low number of species in bilimneus (15, vs. 50 in limnebius s.str.)

[…] acids with default settings. bootstrap support was derived from 100 replicates, also implemented within mingle. phylogenetic diversity scores for susc and susd gene trees were calculated using the picante r package []. all trees were visually inspected using arb v6.0.2 []., genomes were annotated using prokka v1.11 []. all subsequent gene-based analysis was performed using the output […]

[…] is presented in supplementary note ., we calculated phylogenetic diversity (mpd) both for species grouped into latitudinal bands as well as for species occurring in each polygonal area using the picante package in r. for each species the minimum and maximum latitude of their distribution was estimated from the geographic dataset. for a given species, this was the minimum and maximum latitude […]

[…] diversity measures were calculated using the “estimate_richness” function for otu richness and shannon’s diversity, and faith’s phylogenetic distance was calculated using the “pd” function of the “picante” r package. one-way anova was used to calculate if dose significantly altered alpha diversity. the kruskal-wallis test was used to test for significant changes to alpha diversity, […]

[…] values, and the resulting edge ranks., ed scores for all species of gymnosperms were obtained using the 100 ultrametric trees and were inferred using the function evol.distinct from the r package picante. the median value of all 100 resulting ed values for each species was compiled and used to produce the edge scores. probability of extinction assessments were obtained from the iucn red list […]

[…] calculated the branch lengths for both trees with the program phylocom version 4.2 (webb et al., ). we then calculated the mean pairwise distance (mpd) of the selected 114 endemic plants with the “picante” package (blomberg, garland & ives, ; kembel et al., ) in r (r development core team, , version 3.1.2) and compared it to a null distribution generated from 1,000 random sampling of 114 […]

[…] relatedness of verrucomicrobial communities, standardized effect size mean pairwise distance (ses mpd; []) was calculated by comparing faith’s index to a null model over 999 iterations. (ses.mpd, picante package []). while faith’s index is positively correlated with richness, ses mpd is a measure of phylogenetic diversity that is unbiased by richness. positive ses mpd values indicate […]
