OrthoInspector 3.0 – Rapid Detection of Orthology and Inparalogy Relations between Different Species

OrthoInspector 3.0


OrthoInspector is a software system incorporating an original algorithm for the rapid detection of orthology and inparalogy relations between different species. IIn addition, several visualization tools have been developed to facilitate in-depth studies based on these predictions. It is made available as an independent software suite that can be downloaded and installed for local use. Command line querying facilitates the integration of the software in high throughput processing pipelines and a graphical interface provides easy, intuitive access to results for the non-expert.
