Homologous Vertebrate Genes Database
HOVERGEN CLEAN release 46 Updated on 10 June 2004 - On line on September 2004
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.
