Project Description:
Snel et al. examined a network of 1600 orthologous gene groups (orthologous genes are related by phylogenetic descent) compiled from 38 genomes, comprising 23,400 genes, for genes that are related by being in the same operon.

Here is the primary result shown graphically. The colors reflect abundance. Orthologous groups that occur in two or three evolutionarily distant species are blue, those that occur in 4-7 species are yellow, those that occur in 8-15 species are orange, while those occurring in 16 or more species are red.
