[…] quantifying congruence scores between the cifa and cifb trees was carried out with matching cluster (mc) and robinson–foulds (rf) metrics using a custom python script previously described () and the treecmp program (). mc weights topological congruency of trees, similar to the widely used rf metric. however, mc takes into account sections of subtree congruence and therefore is a more refined […]

[…] congruency analysis was used to further explore the possible existence of phylosymbiosis. for this, we quantified congruence between the host phylogenetic tree and microbial dendrograms using the treecmp program. microbial dendrograms were created in qiime using both weighted unifrac and bray-curtis distances derived from otu tables averaged by frog species. using treecmp, we calculated […]

[…] the trees are significantly different from one another., furthermore, differences among phylogenetic trees obtained from genome, snp and mlst gene fragments data were evaluated with the software treecmp. in this analysis, two topology metrics, matching clusters and r-f clusters, were utilized. a distance value of 0 indicates that the two trees under evaluation are identical and the value […]

[…] of splits or clades induced by one of the trees but not the other. here, we use an approximation to the rf metric implemented in the comparetree program (, which also calculates the fraction of splits in the query tree (i.e., the reconstructed trees) that are shared with the reference one (i.e., the true trees). unlike the rf metric, […]

[…] triplets; that is, on three-element subsets of the set of species. triplet based distances provide a robust and fine-grained measure of the similarities between trees, which was developed as toolbox treecmp., the above three metrics have different characteristics and application scopes of their own. in , we constructed example trees and measure their distances with the three metrics. shows […]
