BackgroundPhylogenetic patterns show the presence or absence of certain genes or proteins in a set of species. They can also be used to determine sets of genes or proteins that occur only in certain evolutionary branches. Phylogenetic patterns analysis has routinely been applied to protein databases such as COG and OrthoMCL, but not upon gene databases. Here we present a tool named PhyloPat which allows the complete Ensembl gene database to be queried using phylogenetic patterns… Expand
PhyloPat: an updated version of the phylogenetic pattern database contains gene neighborhood
TLDR
This work used a single linkage clustering algorithm to create 241 697 phylogenetic lineages, using all the orthologies provided by Ensembl v49, and described an updated version of PhyloPat which can be queried by an improved web server. Expand
Relaxed Purifying Selection and Possibly High Rate of Adaptation in Primate Lineage-Specific Genes
TLDR
It is found that older genes carry fewer and less frequent nonsynonymous single-nucleotide polymorphisms than younger genes suggesting that Older genes experience a stronger purifying selection at the protein-coding level. Expand
Preservation of Genes Involved in Sterol Metabolism in Cholesterol Auxotrophs: Facts and Hypotheses
TLDR
A more parsimonious way is proposed to explain their accelerated evolution and subsequent stabilization in the case of the nematode and the fruitfly, which would have lost their ancestral function in cholesterogenesis but would have retained the other function(s), which keep them under pressure. Expand
EST-Based Approach for Dissecting Root Architecture in Barley Using Mutant Traits of Other Species
TLDR
The approach undertaken to search for potential orthologous genes involved in root morphogenesis between Arabidopsis, rice, and barley is described and these comprehensive gene lists provide strong platform for molecular studies and will accelerate gene identification in barley and related species. Expand
Evolutionary origin of sex-related genes in the mouse brain.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the orthologues of the sex-related genes in the mouse brain that emerged just before the divergence of bony fish might have essential roles in the evolution of the sexual dimorphism in the brain forming protein-protein interactions. Expand
Similarly Strong Purifying Selection Acts on Human Disease Genes of All Evolutionary Ages
TLDR
The age of emergence and propensity for gene loss (PGL) of all human protein–coding genes are determined and disease genes with non-disease genes are compared in terms of their evolutionary rate, strength of purifying selection, mRNA expression, and genetic redundancy. Expand
Automated Prediction of Protein Function from Sequence
TLDR
This chapter reviews computational techniques and resources for gene function prediction from sequence with an overview of widely used homology search tools, such as BLAST, and extends discussion to more recently developed methods. Expand
What does the Allen Gene Expression Atlas tell us about mouse brain evolution
TLDR
It is argued that the conclusions one can draw on evolution of twelve major brain regions from such a molecular level analysis supplements existing knowledge of mouse brain evolution and introduces new quantitative tools, especially for comparative studies, when AGEA-like data sets for other species become available. Expand
Conservation of key members in the course of the evolution of the insulin signaling pathway
TLDR
The emergence of glucostatic role in mammals can neither be explained by the development of new sets of signaling elements, nor by the establishment of new interactions between pre-existing proteins, according to the rebuilt putative orthologous ISPs in 17 eukaryotic organisms. Expand
Dynamism in gene expression across multiple studies.
TLDR
Methods of examining gene expression dynamics, how and when genes change expression, are developed and demonstrated in a meta-analysis involving over 29,000 microarrays and have a new way of characterizing dynamics, complementary to measures looking at changes in absolute variation or breadth of tissues showing expression.
