  1. Tajima test [43] was conducted in MEGA Version 7 on an aligned sequence dataset by choosing nucleotide in the substitutions type. N is the total number of nucleotide positions considered by test statistic for the analysis. Any nucleotide site that shows two or more nucleotides among the total number of sequences was considered as a segregating site, which is a default setting. The mean number of pairwise differences between the sequences was represented as θ. The nucleotide differences per site among the sequences was represented as π and was collectively termed as nucleotide diversity. A high positive Tajima D-value of (>2) with * indicates a significant (P < 0.05) positive selection in these sequences
