Abstract / Description of output

Global sequence comparisons between large datasets, such as those arising from genome projects, can be problematic to display and analyze. We have developed SimiTri, a Java/Perl-based application, which allows simultaneous display and analysis of relative similarity relationships of the dataset of interest to three different databases. We illustrate its utility in identifying Caenorhabditis elegans genes that have distinct patterns of phylogenetic affinity suggestive of horizontal gene transfer. SimiTri is freely downloadable from and the source code is freely available from the authors.
