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.

lamppost_snow.jpgHello everyone! Since we are getting close to holidays I’m going to get a bit more personal than usual. Fear not, as the evolutionary tale of the month will still be published. I will start saying that, unsurprisingly, I am a scientist. You, the reader, probably are a scientist too. I would guess that you have some interest in molecular evolution of some sorts. Our profession is one driven by passion and curiosity. Unfortunately, it is also one which forces many people to leave their homes away for long time. Any laboratory has, or has had at some point, many people...
