Welcome to PhylomeDB 4!

PhylomeDB is a public database for complete catalogs of gene phylogenies (phylomes). It allows users to interactively explore the evolutionary history of genes through the visualization of phylogenetic trees and multiple sequence alignments. Moreover, phylomeDB provides genome-wide orthology and paralogy predictions which are based on the analysis of the phylogenetic trees. The automated pipeline used to reconstruct trees aims at providing a high-quality phylogenetic analysis of different genomes, including Maximum Likelihood tree inference, alignment trimming and evolutionary model testing.

PhylomeDB includes also a public download section with the complete set of trees, alignments and orthology predictions, as well as a web API that faciliates cross linking trees from external sources. Finally, phylomeDB provides an advanced tree visualization interface based on the ETE toolkit, which integrates tree topologies, taxonomic information, domain mapping and alignment visualization in a single and interactive tree image.

tpp_fanart_by_hajimikimoFirst launched in Japan on February 1996, the Pokémon franchise of video-games and related media have since catched millions of fans across the globe. The original Game Boy video-games rapidly became a total hit in its motherland, a trend that continued after its release for the western public. Since then, many games of the main series, as well as dozens of spin-offs have consolidated the brand as one of the biggest video-game related intellectual properties in the world. The games...
