[…] of 16,894 gene-trees (provided in additional file ) that resulted from the combination of the four generated phylomes (see above) were used to infer several supertree-based phylogenies. first, the treeko algorithm [], and the ete toolkit [] were used to construct a list of 32,437 species-tree topologies represented in all gene evolutionary histories (provided in additional file ).

[…] v2.0 was used to map every protein in the data set to the oldest eukaryotic og in which the protein is present and generated a multiple sequence alignment (msa) and sequence tree using phyml v.3.30. treeko () algorithm was used to root the tree and decompose the sequence tree into a set of all possible pruned trees with no duplications and in consonance with the species tree topology. the set […]
