Reliable orthology prediction is central to comparative genomics. Although orthology is defined by phylogenetic criteria, most automated prediction methods are based on pairwise sequence comparisons. Recently, automated phylogeny-based orthology prediction has emerged as a feasible alternative for genome-wide studies.
