[…] the accuracy of the results. It is now at its 1.1.10 version (updated in September 2017) and it depends on the following packages: Python, BLAST+, MCL graph clustering algorithm, MAFFT, and FastTree.Ortholog-Finder is a tool developed to build ortholog data sets for phylogenetic analysis. Results published by its developers suggest that it can tolerate gene loss after gene duplication and HGT, be […]

[…] search.php?method=Org_Ppersica). The bioinformatics tools included BLAST searches, Gene Ontology (GO), Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG), EuKaryotic Orthologous Groups Database (KOG) and ortholog finder. Arabidopsis sequences were identified using The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR). Amino acid sequences were aligned using ClustalW followed by manual adjustments when needed [] […]


ECgene: genome annotation for alternative splicing

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 540072
PMID: 15608289
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gki118

[…] ECgene is an ongoing project. It aims to be one of the reference sites for genome annotation. A number of new features and applications are currently under development. Gene profiler, ortholog finder and ChimerDB are among the applications to be completed in the near future. We plan to expand and optimize the system resources to shorten the response time. Other model organisms will […]
