INVHOGEN (INVertebrate HOmologous GENes) is a database combining the available invertebrate protein genes from UniProt (consisting of Swiss-Prot, TrEMBL) into gene families. For each family INVHOGEN provides a multiple protein alignment, a maximum likelihood based phylogenetic tree, and taxonomic information about the sequences. It is possible to download the corresponding GenBank flatfiles, the alignment and the tree in Newick format. Sequences and related information have been structured in an ACNUC database under a client/server architecture. Thus, complex selections can be performed. An external graphical tool allows access to the data to evaluate homology relationships between genes and distinguish orthologous from paralogous sequences. INVHOGEN complements the well-known HOVERGEN database.
