NEXUS data file for phylogenetic analysis of Deltocephalinae (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae)

Dataset

Description

The Delt_Comb.NEX text file contains the original data used in the phylogenetic analyses of Zahniser & Dietrich, 2013 (European Journal of Taxonomy, 45: 1-211). The text file is marked up according to the standard NEXUS format commonly used by various phylogenetic analysis software packages. The file will be parsed automatically by a variety of programs that recognize NEXUS as a standard bioinformatics file format. The first nine lines of the file indicate the file type (Nexus), that 152 taxa were analyzed, that a total of 3971 characters were analyzed, the format of the data, and specification for two symbols used in the dataset. There are four datasets separated into blocks, one each for: 28S rDNA gene, Histone H3 gene, morphology, and insertion/deletion characters scored based on the alignment of the 28S rDNA dataset. Descriptions of the morphological characters and more details on the species and specimens included in the dataset are provided in the publication using this dataset. A text file, Delt_morph_char.txt, is available here that states the morphological characters and characters states that were scored in the Delt_Comb.NEX dataset. The original DNA sequence data are available from NCBI GenBank under the accession numbers indicated in publication. Chromatogram files for each sequencing read are available from the first author upon request.
