Phylogenetic tree of MEPE intronic regions. Phylogenetic depiction of the MEPE intronic region tree reconstructed using Bayesian inference (Bayes), Maximum Likelihood (ML) and Neighbor-Joining (NJ) algorithms. The labels are positioned near the branches supporting the tree and inside the brackets (Bayes/ML/NJ). The methodology was similar to the implemented in the coding regions. The alignment of the intronic regions comprehends 856 out of 21120 sites completely clean of gaps in all the species (except for the Macaca mullata since the intronic regions was not available).
