    MultiParanoid vs. QuickParanoid: pro et contra for each

    9th July 2013

    MultiParanoid

    Here we present a new proteome-scale analysis program called MultiParanoid that can automatically find orthology relationships between proteins in multiple proteomes. The software is an extension of the InParanoid program that identifies orthologs and inparalogs in pairwise proteome comparisons. MultiParanoid applies a clustering algorithm to merge multiple pairwise ortholog groups from InParanoid into multi-species ortholog groups.

    QuickParanoid

    QuickParanoid is a suite of programs for automatic ortholog clustering and analysis. It takes as input a collection of files produced by InParanoid and finds ortholog clusters among multiple species. For a given dataset, QuickParanoid first preprocesses each InParanoid output file and then computes ortholog clusters. It also provides a couple of programs qa1 and qa2 for analyzing the result of ortholog clustering.

    So… both use InParanoid… Are there any differences? Let me list those which I’ve found.
