BACKGROUND Gene duplication has been suggested to be an important process in the generation of evolutionary novelty. Neofunctionalization, as an adaptive process where one copy mutates into a function that was not present in the pre-duplication gene, is one mechanism that can lead to the retention of both copies. More recently, subfunctionalization, as a(More)
Total evidence and the use of large datasets to overcome uncertainty are the state of the art in systematic analysis. This assumes that the only true phylogenetic signal is ancestry and that functional, structural, and other factors will not add an alternative signal. Using gene families, where individual codon positions were sorted into bins based upon(More)
LocDB is a manually curated database with experimental annotations for the subcellular localizations of proteins in Homo sapiens (HS, human) and Arabidopsis thaliana (AT, thale cress). Currently, it contains entries for 19,604 UniProt proteins (HS: 13,342; AT: 6262). Each database entry contains the experimentally derived localization in Gene Ontology (GO)(More)
One of the major challenges in the post-genomic era with hundreds of genomes sequenced is the annotation of protein structure and function. Computational predictions of subcellular localization are an important step toward this end. The development of computational tools that predict targeting and localization has, therefore, been a very active area of(More)
India has a rich and diversified flora. It is seen that synthetic drugs could pose serious problems, are toxic and costly. In contrast to this, herbal medicines are relatively nontoxic, cheaper and are eco-friendly. Moreover, the people have used them for generations. They have also been used in day-to-day problems of healthcare in animals. 25% of the drugs(More)
