FastER 1.0 – Identification of Genes with Fast-evolving Regions in closely related Genomes

FastER 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

FastER is a software for identifying orthologous gene pairs that appear to have fast-evolving regions between two closely related genomes. Its input can be either two closely related whole genome sequences or two closely related orthologous sequences. It consists of two steps: first, it will detect all regions with overrepresented nonsynonymous mutations; second, it will test the nonsynonymous evolution rate against the neutral evolution rate in that gene.
