OPTIC Orthologous and Paralogous Transcripts in Clades.

We have looked at complete genomes in several clades. You can browse and download the results for

Flies (12 species)
Nematodes (4 species)
Amniota (6 species: human, dog, mouse, monodelphis, platypus, chicken)
Yeasts (7 species)
Vertebrates (8 species)
Grape Pairwise probabilistic alignments.
Gene predictions Genepredictions by homoloy based on Guy Slater's exonerate. Gene predictions are available for browsing and download.
Flies Gene predictions in Drosophila species as part of the AAA Project. Also available for download are multiple alignments, orthologogy assignments used in
Heger, A. and Ponting, CP.. (2007). Evolutionary rate analyses of orthologs and paralogs from 12 drosophila genomes. Genome Res 17:1837-1849.
Mammals Gene predictions in Opossum (Monodelphis domestica) and Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus).
