Working groups

Benchmarking

The long-term goal of this group is to establish standards in orthology benchmarking.

If you want to join the effort, please contact Christophe Dessimoz (c.dessimoz@ucl.ac.uk) and subscribe to the Quest for Orthologs mailing list.

Species tree resource

The purpose of the working group is to provide a species tree for the construction of reference gene phylogenies and for benchmarking. It will include the species of the QfO reference proteomes, and it is not supposed to be an exhaustive ToL. The tree topology should be ‘robust’, meaning in agreement with main ToL projects and latest knowledge.
