Welcome to the PanOCT wiki!
PanOCT, Pan-genome Ortholog Clustering Tool, is a program written in PERL for pan-genomic analysis of closely related prokaryotic species or strains. Unlike traditional graph-based ortholog detection programs, it uses micro synteny or conserved gene neighborhood (CGN) in addition to homology to accurately place proteins into orthologous clusters.
PanOCT: Automated Clustering of Orthologs using Conserved Gene Neighborhood for Pan-Genomic Analysis of Bacterial Strains and Closely Related Species. Derrick E. Fouts, Lauren Brinkac, Erin Beck, Jason Inman, and Granger Sutton. Nucleic Acids Res 2012 Aug 16. Epub ahead of print.
