This week in PLoS ONE, a pair of New Zealand researchers attempted to predict co-variation between genes based on phylogeny. The duo applied generalized linear models to try to determine the functions of genes in a handful of prokaryotic organisms using gene tree branch length information. Though the accuracy varied with gene ontology group, the researchers reported that the approach was especially accurate for some genes, including those involved in translation.
