So, I have a group of genes (proteins) - that arent necesarely related and I am interested in dn/ds ratio, or rather the conservation . They are all from the same species (A.thaliana) and I have data on around 600 individuals (mostly from 1001genomes).

What software should I stick to?

I was thinking of PAML (Phylogenetic Analysis by Maximum Likelihood) , more specifically codeml. I would give it aligned sequences, so 600 sequences of the same protein and a tree that goes with it, but I saw people say it is best suited for more distant species.

Is my approach wrong? What should I stick to for this?

if they are not related (i.e. not homologous) you CANNOT use phylogenetic based methods

You are on the correct track, but PAML description is very hard.

This is the manual.

I would recommend to read all about codeml program (pp. from 28th to 38th.). You will understand what these parameters represent and all that is necessary to specify to run PAML.

I suggest using runmode=-2. What this mode means is described on p. 34.

Good luck!

Ah, so runmode=-2 gives me the exact lineage ratio I need!

Thank you a lot!

But wait , if I run it pairwise , (runmode -2) , then it compares all sequences to the first one?

Or will it compare 3rd to 2nd , 4th to 3rd etc?

Should I leave runmode = 0 to get it globaly?

Dear dav,

I think the first url contains the answer to your question about Dn/Ds for a global alignment.

This file is about runmode-option.

In any case, PAML is a very complicated program as well as its manual.

Below there are a manual how to read PAML-description and other useful urls

Good luck!

Natasha
