Definition <br /> ATGC stands for Alignable Ti <br /> ATGC stands for Alignable Tight Genomic Cluster, which is cluster of closely related prokaryotic genomes. ATGC is the principal notion of this web resource.<br /> The purpose of this web resource is to prepare ATGC-derived data sets for a variety of research projects in functional and evolutionary genomics.<br /> Unique features of ATGC include:<br /> * Reliable identification of orthologs (high degree of similarity between the genomes in the set allow an extensive use of synteny in ortholog identification);<br /> * Fine granularity of protein classification (in comparisons of more distant genomes, proteins belonging to families of paralogs are often lumped into a singlegroup; under the ATGC approach, comparison of genomic sequences from highly similar genomes allows one to track each set of orthologs separately);<br /> * Relative rarity of changes of any kind (in sequence, genome organization and gene content) allows the use of parsimony-related methods of analysis.<br /> y-related methods of analysis.<br />
