Analysis for positive selection. Cladogram of the MSTN-2a, -2b tree. dN/dS ratios were calculated along each branch using the free ratios model. The tree showed several possible locations of positive selection and increased rate variation where the dN/dS ratios were much greater than 1. The dN/dS analysis was not performed on the MSTN-1a, -1b tree because of lack of support for a free-ratios model.
