For Maximum Parsimony, Bayesian Inference and Median Joining Network analysis, indels were coded according to the Simple Indel Coding rules using Seqstate (Muller, 2005).
This sets the study apart from many other datasets which exclude all or some indels because they have proved tricky to identify, or state that indel calling is not of a high quality.
These six marker and six indel matrices were combined into a "molecular only" matrix of 132 taxa and 15147 characters (6899 informative) which is, in principle, equivalent to the Bremer et al.
Alu's are involved in all known classes of regulatory elements, from new exon formation and alternative splicing to gene silencing, from INDEL formation to the regulation of the lncRNAs which organize chromatin loops into functional areas.
