Hogenom is a database of homologous genes in fully-sequenced genomes, structured under the Acnuc sequence database management system. It allows the selection of sets of homologous genes among general or vertebrate species, and to visualise multiple alignments and phylogenetic trees. Thus Hogenom is particularly useful for comparative sequence analysis, phylogeny and molecular evolution studies. More generally, Hogenom gives an overall view of what is known about a specific gene family. Hovergen is a similar database exclusively dedicated to homologous vertebrate genes.
