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.

queen_i_want_to_break_free.jpgThe XIXth century was characterized by the fight of workers all over the industrialized world for a myriad of rights that are now widely accepted. The fight is not over, and protests are still common, but the bulk of achievements and ideological advancements were made at that time. Analogously, it can be argued that the XXth century most important social fights (without ever forgetting the different fights for the civil rights of ethnic minorities) were related to feminism, sexuality and gender roles. The beginning of the...
