I'm a postdoc currently working on mouse evolutionary genomics. I have a strong background in phylogenetics, genomics, molecular evolution, and phylogenomics. I use R, Python, and bash daily and act as a system administrator for servers dedicated to high-throughput sequencing analysis.

Comment: C: Phylogenetic tree using ML algorithm
... Yes, though some models are only implemented in a Bayesian framework (e.g., UCLN vs. strict clock models in BEAST). Also, the default priors are a great starting point in modern approaches and generally perfectly acceptable for publication-worthy analyses. If you can construct informed priors, you s ...

Comment: C: Weird phylogenetic tree (bacterial transporters)
... Are you specifying the root explicitly? Be aware that some visualizers select the root taxon arbitrarily. Do things look okay when you visualize the phylogeny as unrooted? ...

Comment: C: Phylogenetic tree using ML algorithm
... If you're calibrating your phylogeny (placing priors on node ages), most Bayesian approaches work better than scaling after the fact. It's not fair to say one is better than the other; they produce different things with different assumptions about how to estimate the phylogeny in the first place. ...

Answer: A: Phylogenetic tree using ML algorithm
... You'll want to do model selection on your dataset. Check out MrModelTest or DT-ModSel. ML phylogenetics produces a point-estimate of the topology (the MLE). Bayesian methods, in addition to being able to specify priors on your analysis, produces a posterior distribution of trees. ...

Answer: A: Phylogeny from incomplete orthogroups
... > However, in all articles I've seen, people try to build trees from complete orthogroups Whether you use 'complete' orthogroups or not depends on the question you are trying to ask. It appears to just be a scale issue in your case. Your tree will still be representative of the relationships for ...

Answer: A: Excel file Import to R
... I'm assuming you know what gene corresponds to each row. If they're in order, do something like: a <- read.table("your_table_with_values.txt", stringsAsFactors=FALSE) b <- [this is going to depend on what format your gene names are in. perhaps you could read as a table and take a ...

Comment: C: Please, please, define what a 'read' is.
... I think there is a lot of misunderstanding here. For starters: 1. Not all quantifying tools are based on mapping. Consider a distribution of per-base quality scores. 2. What is a non-experimental experiment? 3. Annotations can be derived experimentally or informatically. The latter is known to not ...

Answer: A: How to draw a phylogenetic tree together with a genome locus structure?
... You asked a similar question last week (https://www.biostars.org/p/217510/#217564), and my answer is the same. This looks to be a case of two different graphics combined. Check the differences in the fonts, for example. ...
