New general method for phylogenetics

July 25, 2017



A new paper from the team in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution this week in which we demonstrate a streamlined protocol for generating multiple sequence alignments and improving downstream phylogenetic analyses using peptide pattern recognition (PPR). We applied this technique to the membrane bound fatty acid desaturases, to provide the first detailed phylogenetic estimates for this enzyme family since 2003.
