Insight into higher level phylogeny of Neuropterida: Evidence from secondary structures of mitochondrial rRNA genes and mitogenomic data

PLoS One
PMCID: 5790268
PMID: 29381758
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191826
call_split See protocol

[…] aligned and used to further analyses. For protein-coding genes, firstly stop codons were excluded. Subsequently, each was aligned based on the invertebrate mitochondrial genetic code with Perl script TransAlign []. Each of tRNA and rRNA genes was aligned using MAFFT (version 7) under iterative refinement method incorporating the most accurate local (E-INS-i) pairwise alignment information []. The […]


Maize chlorotic mottle virus exhibits low divergence between differentiated regional sub populations

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5775324
PMID: 29352173
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19607-4

[…] andomly selected and labelled MCMV sequences to their region using SNPs in a 500 bp interval (Supplemental Table ).To identify protein coding changes within the clades we repeated our ARI analysis on translated alignments for each MCMV ORF (Supplemental Tables –). The most significant variation was observed in the coat protein gene and the P7a/P31 region in which the systemic movement protein P31 […]


The genetic diversity of narcissus viruses related to turnip mosaic virus blur arbitrary boundaries used to discriminate potyvirus species

PLoS One
PMCID: 5754079
PMID: 29300751
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190511

[…] together with those of the same viruses from the public nucleotide sequence databases using outgroup sequences of NLSYV, JYMV, ScaMV, TuMV and WoSV. The alignments were made using CLUSTAL_X2 [] with TRANSALIGN (kindly supplied by Georg Weiller) to maintain the alignment of the encoded amino acids, and the WEBprank server ( The nucleotide sequences of de […]


Using herbarium derived DNAs to assemble a large scale DNA barcode library for the vascular plants of Canada1

Appl Plant Sci
PMCID: 5749818
PMID: 29299394
DOI: 10.3732/apps.1700079
call_split See protocol

[…] when the DNA of the target specimen was degraded and/or the match of primers to template DNA was poor. Both rbcL and matK sequences were aligned using the back-translation sequence alignment program, transAlign, to identify sequences with frameshift mutations (). After filtering out contaminants and correcting editing errors, the sequences were uploaded to BOLD ( qua […]


Deep level phylogeny of Cicadomorpha inferred from mitochondrial genomes sequenced by NGS

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5585334
PMID: 28874826
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-11132-0

[…] The nucleotide sequences of each protein-coding gene were aligned based on codons using the invertebrate mitochondrial genetic code in the Perl script TransAlign. Each of tRNA and rRNA genes was aligned using MAFFT (version 7) under iterative refinement method incorporating the most accurate local (E-INS-i) pairwise alignment information. Alignments […]


Ancient Occasional Host Switching of Maternally Transmitted Bacterial Symbionts of Chemosynthetic Vesicomyid Clams

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5604134
PMID: 28922872
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evx166

[…] om each mitochondrion and symbiont were separately aligned using MAFFT v7.164 b (), using the default parameters. On the basis of amino acid alignment, the nucleotide sequences were aligned using the Transalign program in EMBOSS package (). The nucleotide sequences of rRNA genes from both the host mitochondria and symbionts were also individually aligned using MAFFT v7.164 b, with the default para […]
