ready Orthologous MAtrix


General Information
The OMA (“Orthologous MAtrix”) project is a method and database for the inference of orthologs among complete genomes. The distinctive features of OMA are its broad scope and size, high quality of inferences, feature-rich web interface, availability of data in a wide range of formats and interfaces, and frequent update schedule of two releases per year.
