PhyloGenes 3.1

May 18, 2021. We are pleased to announce the PhyloGenes version 3.1 release. The gene families and gene trees are from the  PANTHER 16.0 release. In PhyloGenes only  genes from plant genomes and selected non-plant model organisms were included. Genes from other genomes in the PANTHER build have been removed (pruned). More stats

Experimental gene function annotations were extracted from the Gene Ontology Consortium (files created on 2021-04-01). Phylogenetic inferred gene function annotations were extracted from the GO PAINT project (files created on 2021-04-01).

External gene links were added:

- maizeGDB (for maize genes)

- SoyBase (for soybean genes)

- SGN (for tomato genes)

- GrainGenes (for wheat and barley genes)

- TAIR (for Arabidopsis genes)

More external links will be added over time.

PhyloGenes 2.2

December 4, 2020. We are pleased to announce the PhyloGenes version 2.2 release.  The gene families and gene trees are from the  PANTHER 15.0 release. In PhyloGenes only  genes from plant genomes and selected non-plant model organisms were included. Genes from other genomes in the PANTHER build have been removed (pruned). More stats

What’s new:

  • You can download the multiple sequence alignment of a gene family. This feature is accessed from the Operations menu icon above a gene tree.
  • Click on a gene, a leaf node on a gene tree, you will be able to download a list of its plant orthologs. More...

PhyloGenes 2.0

March 4, 2020. We are pleased to announce the PhyloGenes version 2.0.  A total of 8512 gene families are included in this release. The gene families and gene trees are pruned versions of PANTHER 15.0 release. They contain only genes from plant genomes and selected non-plant model organisms. Genes from other genomes in the PANTHER build have been removed (pruned). Experimental gene function data are extracted from the files available from the Gene Ontology Annotations (GOA) project at the EBI (file generated on 2020-02-07). More stats

What’s new:

  • 10 more plant genomes were added to gene families including potato, cassava, oilseed rape (see complete species list here)
  • You can select an organism to have its genes highlighted in a tree
  • Easier tree browsing using mouse wheel or trackpad for scrolling
  • Better alignment between a tree and its gene information table
  • Compact UI showing more data on a family page
  • Safari and Firefox browsers are now supported

PhyloGenes 1.2

We are pleased to announce the PhyloGenes version 1.2 release (released on November 8, 2019).  The gene family build has not changed in this release. The gene families and gene trees are pruned versions of PANTHER 14.1 release. They contain only genes from selected plant genomes and 10 non-plant model organismsGenes from other genomes in the PANTHER build have been removed (pruned). More stats

What's new

  • Experimental gene function data have been updated. They were extracted using the QuickGO REST API (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/QuickGO/api/index.html) on 2019-10-25.
  • Toggle to see multiple sequence alignment (MSA) of a gene family (more)
  • Graft your sequence to an existing PhyloGenes gene family tree (for species not included in PhyloGenes) (more)

We enhanced the alignment between trees and their adjacent gene information tables. Leaf nodes in a tree now stay aligned with their corresponding gene rows in the gene table when resizing to a narrow browser window. We also fixed a rare data bug where some members were missing from the DUF641 gene family tree. If you notice anything else wrong please let us know!

PhyloGenes 1.1

We are pleased to announce the PhyloGenes version 1.1 release (released on August 1, 2019).  A total of 8171 gene families are included in this release. The gene families and gene trees are pruned versions of PANTHER 14.1 release. They contain only genes from selected plant genomes and 10 non-plant model organisms. Genes from other genomes in the PANTHER build have been removed (pruned). Experimental gene function data are extracted from the files available from the Gene Ontology Annotations (GOA) project at the EBI (file generated on 2019-07-01). More stats

Highlights of new features of PhyloGenes gene tree display:

  • Toggle between a compact view and a fully expanded view
  • Remove  (prune) selected organisms from a gene tree
  • Tree images can be downloaded as PNG or SVG files
