This list of putative orthologs is based on a reciprocal best-blast (RBB) search between proteins found in the two genomes. When applicable, the RBB hits were subject to further evaluation using Ortholuge
computational tool for generating more precised ortholog predictions (developed by the Brinkman Lab
). A description for each Ortholuge classification and access to additional ortholog analysis tools is available at our companion database, the
Pseudomonas Ortholog Database
Please Note: Ortholuge cannot be used for certain RBB analyses involving closely-related strains (e.g. Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 versus Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14) because the phylogenetic distance between each ingroup protein is very small in
relation to the phylogenetic distance between each ingroup protein and the associated outgroup protein. In these cases, the "Ortholuge Classification" value will be left blank which indicates Ortholuge analysis was not peformed, however the two proteins may very well be orthologs. In
other cases, only some rows will be missing Ortholuge classifications, which can occur when a suitable gene could not be found in the outgroup species.
