Comment: C: How to make ortholog table with Reciprocal Best Hit blast (Python?) ?
... Conceptually, the main limitation of reciprocal best hit is that it cannot cope with one-to-many or many-to-many orthology, which exist whenever a gene has duplicated after the speciation of interest. More discussion here: https://academic.oup.com/gbe/article/5/10/1800/520875/Bidirectional-Best-Hit ...

Answer: A: How to find orthologs in both complete and fragmented genomes using OMA Standalo
... Although OMA standalone and ESPRIT run within the same software, they have different purposes and for the moment we don't provide a unified pipeline between the two. This means that you have to take a two step process: 1. Run ESPRIT to identify likely split genes (which is what you appear to have ...

Answer: A: OMA current state and its updates
... Hi Natasha, 1. Smith-Waterman alignments are necessarily more sensitive than blast alignments. The reason you might get more hits is likely due to differences in length and minimum score thresholds. You can play with these parameters in OMA Standalone (but as you hint, lowering fa ...

Comment: C: [OMA] When input sequence data are DNA, OMA conversion in AA ?
... We recommend using protein sequences, because we have done much more benchmarking on this type of data. There are practical advantages too: public genomes exported from OMA, including precomputed all-against-all, are only available at for protein sequences. By contrast, the DNA-level comparison supp ...

Answer: A: [OMA] When input sequence data are DNA, OMA conversion in AA ?
... No, OMA does not translate DNA into AA. While it's true that Gonnet PAM matrices were defined on amino-acid, it's also possible to derive empirical scoring matrices from DNA in the same way. In OMA standalone, if the input data type is DNA, we use such matrices to perform alignment and evolutionary ...

... The work chunks that have finished computing will be reused—it does not matter what job scheduler you used or if you even used one in the first place. These are the gzipped files in the Cache/AllAll folder. However, if the SGE run was interrupted, there might be some chunks that are incomplete and ...
