PhylomeDB V4 released

The new version of PhylomeDB has been released. Version 4  

Open positions in Gabaldon's lab

We have several open positions in our lab, associated to several of our main lines of research. Please check the details here.

MetaPhOrs: orthologs and paralogs accross 829 genomes, based on multiple phylogenetic evidence

We have launched MetaPhOrs, a meta-method to predict orthology and paralogy from multiple phylogenetic evidence. To maximize reliability and coverage, we retrieved gene trees from PhylomeDB, Ensembl, TreeFam and Orthogroups. In addition we built maximum likelihood trees for orthologous gene families in OrthoMCL, COG, and EggNOG.


PhylomeDB v3.0 released

A new version of PhylomeDB has been released. With over 400.000 phylogenetic trees, PhylomeDB is currently the major public phylogenetic repository. It contains phylomes from model (Human, Yeast, Drosophila, Arabidopsis), but also alternative models such as the fungal pathogen Candida albicans, or the insects T. castaneum, N. vitripenis  and A. pisum.  New features have been added to the user's front end, including fully interactive tree images and link outs to external information.


Nothing found

DeathBase: a database on structure, evolution and function of proteins involved in apoptosis and other forms of cell death.

Deathbase, a database of proteins involved in cell death has been officialy launched. This database compiles relevant data on the function, structure and evolution of proteins involved in apoptosis and other forms of cell death in several organisms. DeathBase  is a joint effort betwen Gabaldon's group at CRG and the lab of Muñoz-Pinedo at IDIBELL.
