How does Ensembl determine homology relationships?

For detailed documentation about the homology prediction pipeline, have a look at this article. Orthologues and paralogues are listed in the gene tab or viewable in the gene trees. Click on any node in the tree to export an alignment.

 

Trees are downloadable from our ftp site.

Please see the following reference for more: Vilella et al. 2008.
