Data Analysis in Molecular Biology and Evolution by Xuhua Xia

By Xuhua Xia

Data research in Molecular Biology and Evolution introduces biologists to DAMBE, a proprietary, ordinary laptop software for molecular info research. the original mixture of this publication and software program will let biologists not just to appreciate the explanation at the back of a number of computational instruments in molecular biology and evolution, but in addition to realize immediate entry to those instruments to be used of their laboratories.
Data research in Molecular Biology and Evolution serves as an outstanding source for complicated point undergraduates or graduates in addition to for pros operating within the field.

Just click the option button Protein-coding Nuc. Seq. and then choose Universal as the genetic code. A bell rings, and a dialog box comes up telling you that the two CDS sequences are not of equal length, and asking if you wish to align the sequences with CLUSTALW (Thompson et al. 1994). I recommend that you click NO because we have not yet learned anything about how to specify the parameters for alignment. The unaligned sequences will then be shown in the display winhdow. If you are adventurous, you may click YES and use the default parameter specification for sequence alignment.

First we define a distance index (D) that measures the difference between the two sequences to be aligned: The distance method is a protocol for finding the alignment with the smallest D. One of the advantages of using the distance method is that, in multiple sequence alignment, the matrix of pair-wise D values can be used to find an approximate phylogenetic tree by using any one of the distance methods in phylogenetic reconstruction. For example, CLUSTALW uses neighbor-joining method to find the phylogenetic tree before proceeding to multiple sequence alignment.

If nucleotide frequencies differ much from then these distances would not be appropriate. Second, when your OTUs have diverged for a long time, then multiple substitutions would occur at the same nucleotide site, leading to what is know as substitution saturation. Obviously, when sequences have reached full substitution saturation, then their similarity will depend entirely on 44 Chapter 6 similarity in nucleotide frequencies. Because the similarity in nucleotide frequencies has little to do with phylogenetic relationship, the phylogenetic trees you produce would be misleading.
