Comment: C: Why might ancestral allele states in 1000G be wrong?
... Yes, although from what I’ve read, dbSNP only uses the chimp sequence as the ancestral state, which is much less sophisticated than the 1000G method. I wondered if either the alignments for this region with other species have improved since the 100G calculation, or if there’s a bug in the 1000G AA e ...

Why might ancestral allele states in 1000G be wrong?
... According to ftp://ftp.1000genomes.ebi.ac.uk/vol1/ftp/pilot_data/technical/reference/ancestral_alignments/README ancestral alleles in the human SNPs in 1000 genomes data are determined by comparison with chimp, orangutan, and macaque. Here's an example from the vcf for chromosome 1 (e.g. from http:/ ...

Answer: A: How to root a tree in R with a polytomy at the root
... Emmanuel Paradis has pointed out that the solution is simple - the tree is treated as unrooted because the deepest node has no length. So all I have to do is to place ":0" before the terminal semicolon, and the tree should be treated as rooted. ...

Comment: C: How to root a tree in R with a polytomy at the root
... Does that maintain the polytomy? I.e. is this the same tree as if it were rooted at 2? From a casual inspection it seems not: > t1 = read.tree(text="[&R] (1:1.250,2:1.250,(3:0.750,(4:0.500,5:0.500):0.250):0.500);") > t2 <- root(t1, outgroup=1, resolve.root=TRUE) > t3 < ...

Comment: C: How to root a tree in R with a polytomy at the root
... I want to compare this tree with an alternative (in this example, strictly bifurcating) tree, as (1:0.833,(2:0.225,(3:0.209,(4:0.114,5:0.114):0.095):0.016):0.608);, and calculate distance metrics between them. This is not strictly defined for some common stats, such as the Robinson-Foulds distance, ...

How to root a tree in R with a polytomy at the root
... In R, I have a phylogenetic tree like this, with a polytomy at the root: library(ape) t1 = read.tree(text="[&R] (1:1.250,2:1.250,(3:0.750,(4:0.500,5:0.500):0.250):0.500);") But it is treated as unrooted: > is.rooted(t1) [1] FALSE How can I force it to be rooted at the poly ...

Comment: C: Plotting unrooted phylogenetic trees with anisometric collapsed nodes
... Thanks. But as far as I can tell it doesn't work on unrooted tree displays, unfortunately. And even on rooted ones, the collapsed triangles are isometric. ...
