Other Genome comparison TOOLS at the NCBI
In an attempt to capture some phylogenetic information in blast comparisons, Olendzenski et al. pioneered an approach to use multiple reference genomes to screen for putatively horizontally transferred genes (see Fig. 4). A similar approach, but using only two instead of three reference genomes is implemented in the TAX PLOT program at the NCBI's genome page (see below).
You pick one genome to analyze, and two reference genomes. The program returns a plot of every ORF in the selected genome represented in a coordinate system, where the two coordinates are the highest alignment score with the two reference genomes:
Selected genome was from Borrelia burgdorferi. The list of selected genes is below:
