OrthoMaM -- orthologous mammalian markers

What you can do:
A database of orthologous genomic markers for placental mammal phylogenetics.
  • The EnsEMBL database was used to determine a set of orthologous genes from 12 available complete mammalian genomes.
  • As targets for possible amplification and sequencing in additional taxa, more than 3,000 exons of length > 400 bp have been selected, among which 118, 368, 608, and 674 are respectively retrieved for 12, 11, 10, and 9 species.
  • A bioinformatic pipeline has been developed to provide evolutionary descriptors for these candidate markers in order to assess their potential phylogenetic utility.
  • Our database centered on complete genome information now makes possible to select promising markers to a given phylogenetic question or a systematic framework by querying a number of evolutionary descriptors.
