HOGENOM is a database of homologous genes from fully sequenced organisms, structured under ACNUC sequence database management system. It allows one to select sets of homologous genes among species, and to visualize multiple alignments and phylogenetic trees. Thus HOGENOM is particularly useful for comparative sequence analysis, phylogeny and molecular evolution studies. More generally, HOGENOM gives an overall view of what is known about a peculiar gene family.

The database itself contains all protein sequences from the EBI proteomes data, with some additional annotations modifications. It contains also all the corresponding nucleotide sequences in Genome Reviews and EMBL. Homologous proteins are classified into families and multiple alignments and phylogenetic trees are computed for each family.

You can query Hogenom using WWW-Query, Quick Search or CrossTaxa.
