Abstract

Determination of gene function is particularly problematic when studying large-gene families because redundancy limits the ability to assess the contributions of individual genes experimentally. Phylogenomics is a phylogenetic approach used in comparative genomics to predict the biological functions of members of large gene-families by assessing the similarity among gene products. In this report, we describe the application of the Rice Kinase Database for elucidating functions of individual members of this gene family.
