How does Ensembl determine homology relationships?

For detailed documentation about the homology prediction pipeline, have a look at this article. In the Gene tab, we list Orthologues and Paralogues and both can be viewed in the Gene trees as well. Click on any node in the tree to export an alignment. More details on the Ensembl Compara Gene trees please refer to Vilella et. al. 2008.
