xenoGI | Reconstructing the history of genomic island insertions in clades of closely related bacteria


Identifies and maps genomic islands. xenoGI contains several features: it groups genes by origin, identifies islands of genes that entered via common horizontal transfer events, and maps those events onto the phylogenetic tree. It includes optional scripts to help users to obtain multiple alignments. In addition, this tool is capable of reconstructing genomic islets and uses synthetic information.
