An integrated database for overlapping genes that includes bioinformatics analysis data. EvOG supports all overlapping genes that are common in a subset of Human, Chimpanzee, Orangutan, Marmoset, Rhesus, Cow, Dog, Mouse, Rat, Chicken, Xenopus and Zebrafish. In addition, it provides a manually curated database that displays the evolutionary features of overlapping genes. The EvOG database is very effective and easy to use for the comparative analysis and investigation of evolutionary processes of overlapping genes. Furthermore, the EvOG database supports a visualization interface that shows the comparative configuration of overlapping genes across multiple species along the whole chromosome scale. The database is constantly being supplemented with new genome data from a range of other available sources.
