Description of Methods |
The entire complement of predicted proteins from the nematode
C. elegans ("worm") and budding yeast S. cerevisiae
("yeast") genomes were compared in a collaboration between the Saccharomyces
Genome Database, Eugene Koonin's group (NCBI), and Temple Smith's
group (Boston University). This analysis is described in detail in Chervitz et al., (1998). Science 282:2022-2028.
Retrieve comparison information for your gene or ORF, or enter a keyword:
This feature allows you to search for a worm or yeast
gene or ORF name and retrieve a list of the categories in
which it is found based on the Worm-Yeast Protein Comparison. The
resulting list contains direct links to the results for the specified
gene or ORF name. All potential categories in which a specific gene or
ORF name can be found are listed in the table located directly below.
In addition you can also search by keyword, to retrieve a list
of clusters whose description, in part, matches that keyword, eg. "act"
will match actin, galactosidase, interacting and factor. You
can also use a wild-card character (*) to retrieve a list of
genes which match your expression, eg "cdc*",

Note: This Worm-Yeast analysis was performed at different
comparison stringencies (different P-values (1e-100, 1e-50,
1e-20, or 1e-10) and different alignment values (>80% or <80%))
in order to pick out a gene's involvement in a shared or unshared
cluster at each different comparison stringency.
