Abstract

Phylogenomics is the analysis of genomes of a group of closely related species. Almost all functional prediction methods rely on the identification, characterisation and quantification of sequence similarity between the gene of interest and genes for which functional information is available. This is the new evolved branch that is developed from the ongoing genome sequencing projects that have led to a phylogenetic approach based on genome-scale data. The use of large data sets in phylogenomic analysis results in a global increase in resolution owing to a decrease in sampling error.
