RERconverge on GitHub

RERconverge is a set of software written in R that estimates the correlation between relative evolutionary rates of genes and the evolution of a convergent binary or continuous trait across a phylogeny.


RERconverge Walk-Throughs

Full step-by-step instructions (pdf or html) on how to identify genetic elements correlated with the convergent evolution of your trait of interest.


ERC Analysis Webserver

ERC measures correlated rates across a phylogeny, allowing for extraction of genes with similar evolutionary histories. High ERC values are typically observed between genes participating in a common pathway or that otherwise share functionality.
