NEXUS file for phylogenetic analysis of Eurymelinae (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae)

Dataset

Description

The text file contains the original data used in the phylogenetic analyses of Xue et al. (2020: Systematic Entomology, in press). 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 six lines of the file identify the file as NEXUS, indicate that the file contains data for 89 taxa (species) and 2676 characters, indicate that the first 2590 characters are DNA sequence and the last 86 are morphological, that gaps inserted into the DNA sequence alignment and inapplicable morphological characters are indicated by a dash, and that missing data are indicated by a question mark. The file contains aligned nucleotide sequence data for 5 gene regions and 86 morphological characters. The positions of data partitions are indicated in the mrbayes block of commands for the phylogenetic program MrBayes at the end of the file (Subset1 = 16S gene; Subset2 = 28S gene; Subset3 = COI gene; Subset 4 = Histone H3 and H2A genes). The mrbayes block also contains instructions for MrBayes on various non-default settings for that program. These are explained in the original publication. Descriptions of the morphological characters and more details on the species and specimens included in the dataset are provided in the supplementary document included as a separate pdf, also available from the journal website. The original raw DNA sequence data are available from NCBI GenBank under the accession numbers indicated in the supplementary file.
