to collect some resources and comments on creating sets of conserved single copy nematode genes.
Mitrieva, et. al, “The draft genome of the parasitic nematode Trichinella spiralis”. Nat Genet, 43, 228-35. (WBPaper00038148)
contains 328 protein families represented by a single copy gene in all six species (C.elegans, B.malayi, M.incognita, T.spiralis, D.melanogaster, S.cerevisiae), 85 nematode specific.
Genis Para, et. al, “Assessing the gene space in draft genomes”,Nucleic Acids Res. , 2009 January; 37(1): 289–297
contains 248 protein families (based on KOG) consisting of single copy genes from H.sapiens, D.melanogaster, A. thaliana, C. elegans, S. cerevisiae and S.pombe
