This repository contains the datasets and corresponding results for the paper "MAGUS: Multiple Sequence Alignment using Graph Clustering". The Datasets.zip archive contains the ROSE, balibase, Gutell, and RNASim datasets used in our experiments. The Results.zip archive contains the outputs of running our methods against these datasets. Datasets used: ROSE: 10 simulated nucleotide model conditions from the SATe paper, each with 20 replicates, and with 1000 sequences per replicate. The ROSE datasets were originally taken from <a href="https://sites.google.com/eng.ucsd.edu/datasets/alignment/sate-i">https://sites.google.com/eng.ucsd.edu/datasets/alignment/sate-i</a> RNASim: This is a collection of simulated nucleotide datasets that were generated under a model of evolution that reflects selection due to RNA structural constraints. We sampled 20 subsets of 1000 sequences each, as well as 10 subsets of 10000 each, by randomly sampling from the original million-sequence RNASim dataset. Gutell: 16S.M, 16S.3, 16S.T, 16S.B.ALL: Four biological nucleotide datasets from the Comparative Ribosomal Website (CRW) with cleaned reference alignments from SATe. Since PASTA is restricted to datasets without sequence length heterogeneity, these were modified to remove sequences that deviate by more than 20% from the median length. The scrubbed datasets range from 740 to 24,246 sequences. The pre-screened 16S datasets were taken from <a href="https://sites.google.com/eng.ucsd.edu/datasets/alignment/16s23s">https://sites.google.com/eng.ucsd.edu/datasets/alignment/16s23s</a> BAliBASE: We use eight BAliBASE amino acid datasets used in the PASTA paper. As above, we remove outlier sequences, which leaves us with sizes ranging from 195 to 732 sequences.

Restriction site-associated DNA sequencing (RAD-seq) data from 643 Miscanthus accessions from a diversity panel, including 613 Miscanthus sacchariflorus, three M. sinensis, and 27 M. xgiganteus. DNA was digested with PstI and MspI, and single-end Illumina sequencing was performed adjacent to the PstI site. Variant and genotype calling was performed with TASSEL-GBSv2, using the Miscanthus sinensis v7.1 reference genome from Phytozome 12 (https://phytozome.jgi.doe.gov). Additional ploidy-aware genotype calling was performed by polyRAD v1.1.

These are the data sets associated with our publication "Semi-natural wildflower-strip field borders provide winter refuge for pest natural enemies: a case study on organic farms." For this project, we compared the communities of overwintering arthropod natural enemies in organic cultivated fields and wildflower-strip field borders at five different sites in central Illinois. Abstract: Strips of wildflowers along field borders are frequently used in midwestern U.S. sustainable agriculture. These properties help diversify otherwise monocultural landscapes and provision them with ecosystem services, including biological control. Predatory and parasitic arthropods (i.e., natural enemies) often flourish in these habitats and will move into crops to help control pests. However, the capacity of wildflower strips for providing overwintering refuge for these arthropods is poorly understood. In this study, we used soil emergence tents to characterize natural enemy communities overwintering in cultivated organic crop fields and adjacent wildflower strip field borders. We found a greater abundance and species richness, and a unique community composition, of predatory and parasitic arthropods in wildflower strips compared to arable crop fields. These results demonstrate that semi-natural habitats such as wildflower strips can be important for maintaining natural enemies in agricultural landscapes.

These data are from an observational study and small experiment investigating reproductive biology and hybridization between two plants, Celastrus scandens L. and Celastrus orbiculatus Thunb. (Celastraceae). These data were collected during the 2008 growing season from the Indiana Dunes National Park (formerly Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore), just east of the municipality of Ogden Dunes, Indiana, USA. The five data files provide information on floral output of the two species, fertilization rate, fruit set rate, hybridization rate at two scales (individual flowers in both species, individual maternal plants in C. scandens), and the results of a hand-pollination experiment that exchanged pollen between the two species. There are six data files associated with this submission, five data files in comma-separated values format and one text file (‘readme.txt’) that includes detailed explanations of the data files.

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.
