CPC COMPARA Paralogy Class

MCPC Modified COMPARA Paralogy Class
A by paralogyDB manually curated version of COMPARA data. We defined a series of curation on COMPARA data and called the new dataset MCPC. For example considering all-vs-all blastp of protein-coding genes of a species, if COMPARA suggest no paralogy relation between two genes but we see a blastp hit with PQC > 70 between those two genes, then we change this paralogy relation from pp to p which may lead to change of paralogy class for one or both of genes to HPG.
PMPC ParalogyDB Model Paralogy Class
Paralogy class attributed to a gene using machine learning model introduced by paralogyDB.
PQC Percent of query coverage
