Contains ortholog groups for most completely sequenced and annotated eukaryotes for a number of completely sequenced and annotated prokaryotes. OrthoMCL-DB provides a wealth of functionality, including domain architecture for each group, phyletic patterns for each group and advanced querying, including phylogenetic pattern searches. The database gives also access to OrthoMCL, which groups proteins into “ortholog groups” (i.e. set of proteins across one or more species that represent putative orthologs and in-paralogs).
