PMCID: 5773221
PMID: 29346424
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006754

[…] curated by the los alamos national laboratory hiv sequence database ( was generated using muscle [, ]. neighbor joining and maximum likelihood trees were constructed with seaview 4 [] and visualized with figtree 1.4.2. genetic distance analysis within each sample were conducted using mega 6 [] and is expressed as substitutions per nucleotide (s/nt). the number […]

PMCID: 5787326
PMID: 29373979
DOI: 10.1186/s12985-018-0931-9

[…] to amplity pepper cryptic virus 2 (pcv-2) rna 1, dprimers to amplify pepper cryptic virus 2 (pcv-2) rna 2, for phylogenetic analysis, multiple alignments were performed by muscle implemented in seaview v.4.5.4 and the phylogenetic trees were built by phyml software [–]. maximum likelihood was used as the criterion to infer phylogenetic relationships between the isolates. the appropriate […]

PMCID: 5794917
PMID: 29391543
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-20359-4

[…] by using the blastp algorithm. the mtcra2 lrr-rlk, previously functionally characterized in m. truncatula regarding symbiotic nodulation, was also included. to generate a similarity tree using the seaview version 4 program, complete amino acid sequences of mtsunn and mtnrlk1 as well as the a. thaliana and m. truncatula closest related sequences previously identified were used to generate […]

PMCID: 5795050
PMID: 29321239
DOI: 10.1098/rsob.170184

[…] comparison by log-expectation (muscle) program (v. 3.8.31) [] was used to produce a multiple sequence alignment for each set of proteins. alignments were then manually corrected and masked in seaview (v. 4.2.4) []. sequences that required a high level of site exclusion (due to the sequence not aligning or not masking well) or where they formed long branches in preliminary analysis […]

PMCID: 5808123
PMID: 29467733
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00102

[…] were added to the sequences of abundant or ubiquitous phf otus. the v1–v3 regions of these sequences were aligned with mafft v7.123b () and a maximum likelihood tree was inferred using the software seaview () with 1000 bootstrapped trials., the correctly formatted amplicons and clone libraries of five serpentinizing ecosystems were downloaded from public databases (sra and genbank). these data […]

PMID: 29739323
DOI: 10.1186/s12863-018-0616-9

[…] up to a 96% identity were downloaded and included in the phylogenetic analyses. for comparative purposes all the sequences used in the amills et al. [] study were included. sequences were aligned in seaview v.4.2.11 [] with clustalw2 [] default settings. the best substitution model for the bayesian inference (bi) analysis was identified using the bayesian information criterion (bic) […]

PMCID: 5943393
PMID: 29750071
DOI: 10.3897/phytokeys.98.25044

[…] material : table 1., the methodological approach of was followed in order to estimate individual gene trees and a supertree. we have used mafft 7 () to individually align the molecular markers and seaview 4 () to manually adjust them. bayesian analysis was conducted in mrbayes 3.2.2 (, ) for individual gene trees (fig. , suppl. material ) using the gtr + g substitution model. the markov chain […]

[…] was build using the phylogenetic tree service included in the patric genomic platform (). phylogenetic trees for the selected protein families were constructed via the phyml algorithm () in the seaview software (), using the default parameters and bootstrap values computed with 100 replicates., the comparative genome analysis and reconstruction of arabinose and aos utilization pathways […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195034

[…] with mafft v.7.299b [] and the fast and progressive method fft-ns-2, suitable for large alignments. one inverted repeat region (ira) was excluded from the alignment. the alignment was viewed with seaview v.4.6 [] or mesquite v.3.10 [] and subsequently processed with gblocks v.0.91b [] using default parameters, which stringently trims alignments allowing no gaps. hence, the final dataset […]
