Canadian Labs Debut Bioinformatics Tools For Ortholog Prediction, SNP Data Clustering | GenomeWeb

Two separate labs based in British Columbia have released freely available bioinformatics tools, one for predicting orthologs, or genes that have diverged after a speciation event, and the other for clustering data from SNP genotyping experiments.

The first seeks to replace the reciprocal-best-Blast-hits approach in ortholog prediction, while the second hopes to give array primer extension-based sequencing methods a kick in the pants.
