Phyloinformatics Lab

Software, datasets, and more

Below, you will find a list of selected applications and databases produced by the Phyloinformatics Lab. Our lab is interested in tools that facilitate comparative genomics and bioinformatics of non-model organisms, focusing on host-pathogen or host-parasite systems. We are also interested in developing dedicated gene prediction and annotation tools for a range of models, from flatworms to viruses. Finally, we produce software that aids in phylogenetic analyses.

FLAViFast Loci Annotation of Viruses

The FLAVi pipeline aims to provide an annotation framework for multiple complete or partial genomes of viruses. Currently, FLAVi is designed to annotate the genomes of viruses of the family Flaviviridae only.

YBYRÁPhylogenetics Result Analyses

The YBYRÁ project integrates software solutions for data analysis in phylogenetics. It comprises tools for topological distance calculation, clade sensitivity analysis, categorization of synapomorphies, identidfication of wildcard taxa, and more.
