Positively Selected Effector Genes and Their Contribution to Virulence in the Smut Fungus Sporisorium reilianum

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5811872
PMID: 29390140
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy023

[…] , the authors state that such models should only be used for hypothesis testing and advise against using them for scans of positive selection. proposed a model selection approach (implemented in the TestNH package) allowing to select for the best nonhomogeneous model supported by the data. They start by fitting the simplest (homogeneous) model and sequentially add parameters to model variation of […]

[…] stop codons ()] and the alignments were cleaned for gaps (by removing all sites that presented a gap in at least one species). We used the programs bppml and mapNH [http://biopp.univ-montp2.fr/forge/testnh (; )] to estimate the synonymous and non-synonymous substitution rate (dS, the number of synonymous substitutions per synonymous site and dN, the number of non-synonymous substitutions per non- […]

[…] ation method for counting substitution was implemented from the R code kindly provided by Tataru and Hobolth , and made available to the libraries (version 2.0.2 and later). MapNH is available in the TestNH package at http://biopp.univ-montp2.fr/forge/testnh, as source code and binary versions. The program is written in standard C++ and it compiles in Linux, Windows and MacOS systems, and depends […]
