Default What information can I extract from a large dataset of a single gene

Hello!

I am working with a lab that has amassed a relatively large dataset (>1,000 samples) of a single gene sequence (rpoD from Aeromonas spp.). They have deduced phylogenetic information using MEGA, but I am wondering what else can be learned from using this data?

Has anyone been in a similar situation?

Thank you in advanced!

You might be able to look at amino-acid (codon) specific positive selection, although this might work better if you find the gene in multiple other species for comparison. You might also be able to look at rates of evolution (molecular clock) of the gene.

jwag,

Thanks for the suggestions. Could you provide literature for these types of investigations?

Codeml software for looking at positive selection seems to be pretty popular, which is part of the PAML package. There's a few tutorials online that you can look at.

For molecular clock investigation, I'm less familiar with that because I haven't had a dataset suitable for it. Though I do know that MEGA can do molecular clock tests.

You could also try out TreeSAAP to test for functional changes.
