ADHoRe (Automatic Detection of Homologous Regions) is a software tool
that automatically detects genomic regions with statistically significant
conserved gene content and order. Therefore, this tool can be used
for analyses within one genome (to look for paralogous regions with duplicated
genes) or for comparisons between genomes of different organisms (to look
for colinearity). The algorithm was especially designed to cope with micro-rearrangements
(events frequently observed within different plant lineages), since these
greatly complicate the search for colinear regions.
