数据库简述：Database of Pairwise-comparisons Of Genomes and universal Orthologous genes
数据库主要信息：A major aim of metagenomic studies is to identify and compare the phylogenetic composition of different samples. This task is usually accomplished by the use of marker genes that are globally conserved across prokaryotes, such as the 16S rRNA gene. Therefore, the choice of markers can greatly affect the results of studies, as different marker genes evolve at different rates and may represent better or worse the phylogenetic relationships of different prokaryotic lineages. Database of Pairwise-comparisons Of Genomes and universal Orthologous genes (POGO-DB) provides a tool for users to probe questions regarding how different aspects of genome variation relate to each other, and to choose marker genes that will better fit the aims of specific studies in a more informed way.
