[…] fig. s7, supplementary material online). we identified 885 syntenic homologs between the two species (supplementary material, supplementary material online) sharing more than 85% of similarity using synchro (drillon et al. 2014). homologous proteins were aligned with muscle (edgar 2004) and alignments were cleaned with gblocks (castresana 2000). cleaned concatenated alignments were then analyzed […]
