DESCRIPTION ^

This object contains routines for calculating various statistics and distances for DNA alignments. The routines are not well tested and do contain errors at this point. Work is underway to correct them, but do not expect this code to give you the right answer currently! Use dnadist/distmat in the PHLYIP or EMBOSS packages to calculate the distances.

Several different distance method calculations are supported. Listed in brackets are the pattern which will match

There are also three methods to calculate the ratio of synonymous to non-synonymous mutations. All are implementations of the Nei-Gojobori evolutionary pathway method and use the Jukes-Cantor method of nucleotide substitution. This method works well so long as the nucleotide frequencies are roughly equal and there is no significant transition/transversion bias. In order to use these methods there are several pre-requisites for the alignment.

  1. DNA alignment must be based on protein alignment. Use the subroutine "aa_to_dna_aln" in Bio::Align::Utilities to achieve this.
  2. Therefore alignment gaps must be in multiples of 3 (representing an aa deletion/insertion) and at present must be indicated by a '-' symbol.
  3. Alignment must be solely of coding region and be in reading frame 0 to achieve meaningful results
  4. Alignment must therefore be a multiple of 3 nucleotides long.
  5. All sequences must be the same length (including gaps). This should be the case anyway if the sequences have been automatically aligned using a program like Clustal.
  6. Only the standard codon alphabet is supported at present.

calc_KaKs_pair() calculates a number of statistics for a named pair of sequences in the alignment.

calc_all_KaKs_pairs() calculates these statistics for all pairwise comparisons in an MSA. The statistics returned are:

The statistics returned by calc_average_KaKs are:

The design of the code is based around the explanation of the Nei-Gojobori algorithm in the excellent book "Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics" by Nei and Kumar, published by Oxford University Press. The methods have been tested using the worked example 4.1 in the book, and reproduce those results. If people like having this sort of analysis in BioPerl other methods for estimating Ds and Dn can be provided later.

Much of the DNA distance code is based on implementations in EMBOSS (Rice et al, www.emboss.org) [distmat.c] and PHYLIP (J. Felsenstein et al) [dnadist.c]. Insight also gained from Eddy, Durbin, Krogh, & Mitchison.
