Multiple Introductions and Recent Spread of the Emerging Human Pathogen Mycobacterium ulcerans across Africa

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5381664
PMID: 28137745
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evx003

[…] before the RAxML runs. For each run, we performed 10,000 rapid bootstrap analyses to assess support for the ML phylogeny. The tree with the highest likelihood across the 10 runs was selected. We used TreeCollapseCL v4 () to collapse nodes in the tree with bootstrap values below a set threshold of 70% () to polytomies, whereas preserving the length of the tree. Phylogenetic relationships were infer […]


Disruption of phenylalanine hydroxylase reduces adult lifespan and fecundity, and impairs embryonic development in parthenogenetic pea aphids

Sci Rep

PMID: 27694983
DOI: 10.1038/srep34321

[…] te classes, 439 informative sites analyzed), and the reliability of each branch was evaluated using the bootstrap method, with 1000 replications. Poorly supported branches (<50%) were collapsed using TreeCollapseCL 4 ( […]


Broad activation of latent HIV 1 in vivo

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5025526
PMID: 27605062
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms12731

[…] netic HIV-1 diversity (average pairwise distance) of HIV-1 DNA or RNA sequences were calculated using the p-distance model in MEGA-CC. Branches with less than one bootstrap support were removed using TreeCollapseCL4 (Emma Hodcroft, Bootstrap values greater than 75 are included on the phylogenetic trees. Tree images were generated with ggtree (https://b […]


Five decades of genome evolution in the globally distributed, extensively antibiotic resistant Acinetobacter baumannii global clone 1

Microb Genom

[…] m 1000 bootstraps. The tree topology contained only two bipartitions with < 50 % bootstrap support; these bipartitions were collapsed into polytomies (using TreeCollapserCL 4; to form the final ML tree. The tree and Gubbins output are available in FigShare. […]


Similarity Based Codes Sequentially Assigned to Ebolavirus Genomes Are Informative of Species Membership, Associated Outbreaks, and Transmission Chains

PMCID: 4438903

[…] he GTRGAMMA model. Nonparametric bootstrap branch support values were mapped onto the best log-likelihood ML tree, and clades with less than 50% bootstrap support were collapsed into polytomies using TreeCollapseCL4 []. […]


The Evolution of Fungal Metabolic Pathways

PLoS Genet
PMCID: 4256263
PMID: 25474404
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.1004816

[…] port in ECgene trees were handled through a multi-step approach. First, ECgene tree branches with less than 0.90 SH-like local support were collapsed using treecollapsercl v4 ( This collapsed ECgene tree was rooted and its polytomies resolved against the bifurcating species phylogeny. This resolved ECgene tree was then reconciled to the multifurcating, […]
