Click here for a list of ortholog datasets based on the QfO reference proteomes.
Please note that for this service we currently use the QfO dataset from 2011_04.

Testing your own method



Provide us your own ortholog inference data. After uploading your predictions, you will be able to compare the quality of your predictions against other orthology inference efforts using several tests.


Protein Reference Dataset




Orthology inference is most often based on molecular protein sequences. For a comparison of different orthology prediction methods, a common set of sequences must be established. Therefore, only identical proteins are mapped to each other.

To make comparisons of method easier, the orthology research community has agreed in 2009 to established a common QfO reference proteome dataset. Currently we are using the reference proteomes from 2011.

NEW: We are experimenting with moving to the QfO reference proteome dataset of 2017. Be among the first to try it out and upload predictions for this new dataset.

Dataset sources
The QfO Reference Proteomes (version 5; 2011-04) is available in The QfO Reference Proteomes version 2017-04 can now be used for benchmarking as well. The dataset is available from EBI.
