SynteBase/SynteView: a tool to visualize gene order conservation in prokaryotic genomes
Background: It has been repeatedly observed that gene order is rapidly lost in prokaryotic genomes. However, persistent synteny blocks are found when comparing more or less distan...

A database of phylogenetically atypical genes in archaeal and bacterial genomes, identified using the DarkHorse algorithm
Background: The process of horizontal gene transfer (HGT) is believed to be widespread in Bacteria and Archaea, but little comparative data is available addressing its occurrence ...

Clustering of cognate proteins among distinct proteomes derived from multiple links to a single seed sequence
Background: Modern proteomes evolved by modification of pre-existing ones. It is extremely important to comparative biology that related proteins be identified as members of the s...

Evaluation of genomic island predictors using a comparative genomics approach
Background: Genomic islands (GIs) are clusters of genes in prokaryotic genomes of probable horizontal origin. GIs are disproportionately associated with microbial adaptations of m...
