HOVERGEN is a "cleaned" version of HOVERGEN

In this database, protein alignments have been checked. Partial sequences which where not compatible with its family aligment have been removed from the family and the alignments and phylogenetic trees re-calculated. Thus alignments and phylogenetic trees of this database are more reliable, but there is less sequences.

For more information on this database, please see the HOVERGEN page.
