SPOCS (Species Paralogy and Orthology Clique Solver) is a graph-based ortholog/paralog prediction tool that will predict orthologs and paralogs given a set of prokaryotic proteomes (the set of proteins encoded by a genome). The software will take a set of protein fasta files (one per species genome), and an optional additional fasta to serve as an outgroup (a species that should be more distantly related to the species of interest than any of the species of interest are to each other).
