Evolutionary trajectories of snake genes and genomes revealed by comparative analyses of five pacer viper

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5059746
PMID: 27708285
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms13107

[…] ning more at least 6 transmembrane (TM) structures were considered as intact candidates and the rest were also considered as pseudogenes. Finally, each OR sequence identified was searched against the Human Olfactory Data Explorer (the HORDE) database ( http://genome.weizmann.ac.il/horde/) using the FASTA ( ftp://ftp.virginia.edu/pub/fasta), and classified into the different families according to t […]


Genetic basis of olfactory cognition: extremely high level of DNA sequence polymorphism in promoter regions of the human olfactory receptor genes revealed using the 1000 Genomes Project dataset

Front Psychol

PMID: 24715883
DOI: 10.3389/fpsyg.2014.00247

[…] —hsa04612) were considered. In addition, the group of genes encoding ORs was considered. To estimate the promoter variability for genes encoding ORs, genes encoding ORs were extracted from HORDE (The Human Olfactory Data Explorer, http://genome.weizmann.ac.il/horde/) (Olender et al., ).Final lists of transcripts for three groups were compiled according to criteria a, b, c, described above in this […]


Characterization of Squamate Olfactory Receptor Genes and Their Transcripts by the High Throughput Sequencing Approach

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 3342882
PMID: 22511035
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evs041

[…] y short (∼2 kb) contigs. In the python, all nondisrupted OR sequences of less than 800 bp in length were classified as truncated genes. Each OR sequence identified was searched against the HORDE (the Human Olfactory Data Explorer) #42 database (, http://genome.weizmann.ac.il/horde/) using the FASTA search and classified into the same family as the best-hit human OR sequence. Our family classificat […]
