Extracting functional trends from whole genome duplication events using comparative genomics

PMCID: 4862183
PMID: 27168732
DOI: 10.1186/s12575-016-0041-2

[…] mologous sequences are then placed within gene families based on a clustering algorithm such as single-linkage clustering. Pre-established gene families from gene family databases such as Ensembl [], TAED [, ], and Selectome [] may also be used, to which new sequences can be added using software like pplacer []. Multiple sequence alignments are generated using standard alignment algorithms which i […]


A systematic search for positive selection in higher plants (Embryophytes)

[…] ons occurred along the branch. This statistical assessment was refined through evaluation with a neutral null hypothesis, as described below. The procedure described above automatically generated the TAED database and hits were manually curated for this study. Manual evaluation of positively selected genes involved examination of the alignments, where in families with branches with Ka/Ks>1 and ali […]
