EDGAR - comparative genomics software for bacteria
What is it about?
EDGAR provides databases of related prokaryotic genomes, facilitating the identification of orthologous genes and comparison of genome features.
Why is it important?
By applying EDGAR it is easy to identify specific traits of individual genomes, as well as common genomic features shared by a group of organisms. Likewise, it is convenient to resolve phylogenetic relations of the organisms or to monitor the occurrence of individual genes of interest within the group of genomes.
