I have tried three different methods to find single copy gene family. The first two are OrthoFinder & OrthoMCL. The third method I choose was InParanoid. I down load InParanoid 4.2 from https://bitbucket.org/sonnhammergroup/inparanoid4/src/master/. And successfully run the program.

Now, I obtained orthologs information. But, I don't know how find the single copy gene family. I guess the first group of orthologs - LEU2_ECOLI & LEU2_YEAST - was a single copy gene family. I don't know if what I think is right.

Could anybody please suggest, how to find single copy gene family from InParanoid, especially in analysis of many species.

Best Wishes !

I'd just use OrthoFinder. It outputs a separate directory of single copy orthologs if any such (ortho)groups exist in your data set.

I also used OrthoFinder, but I‘m worried that the result of only using Orthofinder is inaccurate. So I want to find the consensus list between several tools (Orthofinder, OrthoMCL, TreeFam, InParanoid ...).

In fact, I wanted to use TreeFam method at first. However, I didn't know the pipeline of TreeFam method at all. So, I chose InParanoid, which looks easier than TreeFam method

I don't think you need to pool the results of multiple methods here. If you're using the latest version of OrthoFinder you're getting the best results from among any of the tools you've mentioned. The only thing you'll need to worry about is making sure that you're providing OrthoFinder the right species tree (if the trees it has estimated on its own appear to be incorrect).
