SHOT 2.0 – Shared Ortholog and Gene Order Tree Reconstruction Tool

SHOT 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

SHOT is a web server for the classification of genomes on the basis of shared gene content or the conservation of gene order that reflects the dominant, phylogenetic signal in these genomic properties. In general, the genome trees are consistent with classical gene-based phylogenies, although some interesting exceptions indicate massive horizontal gene transfer. SHOT is a useful tool for analysing the tree of life from a genomic point of view

OrthoAlign – Gene Order Alignment

OrthoAlign

:: DESCRIPTION

OrthoAlign is a software for the gene order alignment problem (alignment of orthologs), accounting for most genome-wide evolutionary events such as duplications, losses, rearrangements and substitutions.

MLGO – Maximum Likelihood for Gene Order Analysis

MLGO

:: DESCRIPTION

MLGO is a web server designed for genome rearrangement and gene order analysis. It can be used to infer a phylogeny from genome rearrangement and gene order data, and can also obtain an estimation of ancestral genomes, given an input tree. It can handle large scale data with the size ranges from mitochandrial to nuclear genomes. Besides rearrangements, it can also handle gene insertion, deletion and duplication.

Syntenator 2 – Multiple Gene Order Alignments with a Gene-specific Scoring Function

Syntenator 2

:: DESCRIPTION

Syntenator represents genomes and alignments thereof as partial order graphs (POGs). These POGs are aligned by a dynamic programming approach employing a gene-specific scoring function. The scoring function reflects the level of protein sequence similarity for each possible gene pair. Our method consistently defines larger homologous regions in pairwise gene order alignments than nucleotide-level comparisons. Our method is superior to methods that work on predefined homology gene sets (as implemented in Blockfinder). Syntenator successfully reproduces 80% of the EnsEMBL man-mouse conserved syntenic blocks. The full potential of our method becomes visible by comparing remotely related genomes and multiple genomes. Gene order alignments potentially resolve up to 75% of the EnsEMBL 1:many orthology relations and 27% of the many:many orthology relations.

DILTAG – Inferring the Evolutionary History of Gene Clusters from Phylogenetic and Gene Order Data

DILTAG

:: DESCRIPTION

DILTAG is an algorithm allowing to infer a set of optimal evolutionary histories for a gene cluster in a single species, according to a general cost model involving variable length duplications (in tandem or inverted), deletions, and inversions.

CYNTENATOR 20101005 – Progressive Gene Order Alignment of 17 Vertebrate Genomes

CYNTENATOR 20101005

:: DESCRIPTION

CYNTENATOR is a progressive gene order alignment software to identify genomic regions of conserved synteny over a large set of diverging species. CYNTENATOR does not depend on nucleotide-level alignments and a priori homology assignment.
