[…] bartonella amplified from the sample emg01 are available in genbank at #kx377404 and #kx377405., phylogeny of the detected bartonella with other members of the bartonella genus was established with topali 2.5 software (biomathematics and statistics scotland, edinburgh, uk). available sequences of ftsz, glta and rpob genes of validated bartonella species were retrieved from the national center […]

[…] using muscle (edgar ). the alignment was used to construct a bayesian phylogeny with 2 million generations. model selection (f81) and molecular phylogenetic construction was carried out using topali (milne et al. ). the phylogenetic tree was mid‐point rerouted and formatted in figtree v1.4 ( for each barcode pair, the number of reads […]

[…] and plugins therein. amino acid alignments were carried out using the muscle plugin (). the bayesian trees were constructed using the jtt + i + γ model for amino acid substitution predicted by topali v2. in , we used human rhodopsin as an out-group (nm_001131055.1), and also included biogenic amine receptors including aminergic, serotonin, dopamine, and histamine h2 receptors from chicken, […]

PMCID: 3852316
PMID: 24350255
DOI: 10.1155/2013/289285

[…] sequences were aligned using clustal omega program []. the program bioedit [] was used to assess the nature of variability and the entropy of the alignment among the species. the program topali v.2.5 [] was used to select the best substitution model and the best method for phylogenetic tree reconstruction based on akaike information criterion, corrected aicc1 and aicc2, and bayesian […]

[…] the ncbi taxonomy browser., protein sequences from the nine species that belonged to the same gh family were aligned using clustalw [] and subjected to phylogenetic analysis with phyml embedded in topali v 2.5 []. to retrieve the respective closest pcwdcazyme neighbors from other fungi, one or more trichoderma proteins from each gh protein family (including pl1 and aa9 auxiliary proteins) […]

PMCID: 5893783
PMID: 29670859
DOI: 10.3389/fcimb.2018.00097

[…] phylogenetic tree was obtained for the concatenated alignment with phyml 3.0 (guindon and gascuel, ), using the most appropriate model of nucleotide substitution and likelihood scores assessed by topali v2.5 (milne et al., ) and by jmodeltest (posada, ). the best model was determined by using the akaike information criterion (aic) (akaike, ; posada and buckley, ). supports for the nodes […]
