German researchers report on novel gene families detected in nematodes from the Pristionchus genus. Using a phylogenomic strategy, the researchers discerned between orthologous and novel gene families with genome sequences for the P. pacificus nematode, half a dozen other Pristionchus species, and two outgroup representatives, retracing evolutionary dynamics and potential gene formation mechanisms.
