Performs phylogenomic analyses to identify expansions on central metabolic enzyme families and their recruitment by NP biosynthetic pathways in an unbiased manner. EvoMining is an evolutionary-driven genome mining tool. It opens the possibility for finding not only classical natural products (NP) biosynthetic sequence enzyme signatures such as non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS) or polyketide synthases (PKS) but other new catalyst.
