Selectome release 6
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.
The interface uses the multiple alignment viewer applet Jalview
We are continuously improving our source data selection as well as the filtering steps on multiple sequence alignments in order to get more reliable results.
The current data are built from the Ensembl database
- version 68 for the Euteleostomi (bony Vertebrates) tree
- version 70 for the Primates tree
- version 71 for the Glires (Rodents+Rabbits+Hares) tree
- version 71 for the Drosophila (12 genomes from Ensembl Genomes 18) tree
