GEvo is CoGe's Genome Evolution Analysis tool, designed to visually compare genomic regions using both local and global alignment algorithms.


Introduction

The purpose of GEvo is to compare multiple genomic regions from any number of organisms using a variety of different sequence comparison algorithms in order to quickly identify patterns of genome evolution

Alignment Algorithms

Current GEvo can use:

  • BlastZ: DNA-DNA Local Alignment Algorithm. Good for finding large regions of conserved sequence.
  • BlastN: DNA-DNA Local Alignment Algorithm. Good for finding small regions of conserved sequence.
  • TBlastX: Translated DNA-Translated DNA Local Alignment Algorithm. Good for finding small regions of divergent, but evolutionarily conserved, genomic sequence where protein translated sequence is more conserved than DNA sequence.
  • Chaos: DNA-DNA Local Alignment Algorithm. Good for finding small regions of conserved sequence. Uses fuzzy matches so it can seed its alignment on small sequences than BlastN. However, it is slower than BlastN.
  • DiAlign: DNA-DNA Global Alignment Algorithm. Global alignment can be seeded using local alignment algorithm. Good for alignment the entire sequence.

GEvo supports using Chaos, BlastN, and BlastZ for seeding DiAlign.

  • Lagan: DNA-DNA Glocal Alignment. Using a hybrid alignment approach.

Regenerating/Saving a GEvo Analysis

GEvo Links

After results are generated by GEvo, a URL will be created that will be a hyperlink to GEvo with your analysis pre-configured. To regenerated the results, all you need to do is press the "Run GEvo Analysis!" button and wait for the analysis to run. This link is stored in two places:

  1. At the bottom of the results under "GEvo Links" (see example image.) This link has been condensed using the tinyurl redirecting service.
  2. At the bottom of the log file. The link to the log file can also be found at the bottom of the results (see example image.)

GEvo Direct

GEvo Direct is a tool for quickly viewing the results of a previously run analysis without having to re-run the analysis. Please Note: CoGe saves all the files from a GEvo analysis for ~24 hours. After that time, the data-files are deleted and the GEvo Direct link will no longer work.

Save Work History

Registered CoGe users can save a link to a GEvo analysis for later retrieval from their work history. This permits a GEvo analysis to also be names and annotated for future reference.

Modifying result graphics

Example GEvo result with contigs, hsp labels, and genomic feature labels drawn.
Where to find GEvo's options for viewing contigs, HSP labels, and genomic feature labels.


Showing Contigs

Some genomes have contig assembly information. To view this in GEvo's results:

  1. Select the "Results Parameters" tab from GEvo's configuration box
  2. Select "yes" for the option "Color contigs red".

Turning on labels for HSPs (blast hits) in GEvo's results

If you want to have the HSP number drawn on the HSP:

  1. Select the "Results Parameters" tab from GEvo's configuration box
  2. Select "yes" for the option "Label HSPs".
  • You can have the labels drawn linearly, so each label is at the same vertical position for a track, or staggered, where they are drawn top, middle, bottom alternating.

Turning on labels for Genomic Features (e.g. genes) in GEvo's results

If you want to have the feature names drawn on the feature:

  1. Select the "Results Parameters" tab from GEvo's configuration box
  2. Select "yes" for the option "Label Genomic Features".
  • You can have the labels drawn linearly, so each label is at the same vertical position for a track, or staggered, where they are drawn top, middle, bottom alternating.
