Welcome on BETA Selectome home page
Selectome is a database of positive selection based on a rigorous
branch-site specific likelihood test. Positive selection is detected
on all branches of animal gene trees.
The web interface of Selectome enables queries according both to the results of positive
selection tests, and to gene related criteria. Test results including
positively selected sites can be visualized on the tree, and on the
protein sequence alignment.
We are currently improving our source data selection as well as the filtering steps on multiple sequence alignments in order to get more reliable results.
The interface uses the multiple alignment viewer applet Jalview
The current data are built from the Ensembl database
