I have list of transcript IDs for the cow coding sequences and I want to use these IDs to retrieve orthologous sequences from other ensembl species. One such ID is ENSBTAT00000000080.
With the ensembl BioMart the procedure seemed intuitive to me....
1. Ensembl 75 as database
2. Dataset: Bos taurus
3. Filters: Gene (checked the Id list box and placed list of Ids); Multi-species comparison (checked the Homolog filter box and selected Orthologous genes (e.g Dog Orthologous genes)
4. Attributes: ticked the Sequence button at the top.
5. Click to get results.
....until the results seems not the correct ones! I am getting 100% identical sequences for whatever organism i want orthologs. For example, ENSBTAT00000000080 returns the same sequences in dog as in duck. Something is not right. What step I am missing?
