I'm testing out various phylogenetic libraries in Python. I want to read in a Newick tree, then, given a list of taxa, generate the smallest tree that contains them all. This task is quite simple and ...
Reading a paper about gene evolution, I see that they do phylogenetic analysis for bacteria using protein sequences. They take the method from another paper. I can suspect that amino-acid sequences ...
Here is what I know so far: Multiple copies are present in prokaryotes, but according to a paper by Lukjancenko el al. it is enough to select the most similar ones. There are stem regions in the ...
Are there any tools to do phylogenetic analysis of gene enrichment? This is, I have a list of genes from an experiment performed in several species, with a z-score that can be described as ...
I have a gene of of interest that I would like to compare between homologues. How does one go about finding a gene from known coding sequences across phyla? Afterwards I imagine I could do a Clustal ...
I understand that both are similar in structure But how can they be easily identified as one or the other? Is it simply based on the presence or lack of a named root (the root is identified as a ...
