Welcome to GECO
Listeria monocytogenes is an important food-borne pathogen and model organism for host-pathogen interaction, representing an interesting target considering the evolutionary forces applying to these microbes.
The GECO LisDB comparative genomics webserver supplies various tools for homology analyses of genus Listeria, which facilitate the identification and visualization of relatedness of genes, genomic regions, and whole pan-genomes. These data can be used to comparatively annotate replicons, recognize indels and mobile elements, simplify the creation of extensive phylogenomic trees, assess the size and conservation of pan-genomes, visualize specific genomic regions in multiple replicons, and extract sequence or homology data in textual form for further analyes.
Discovery of common and disparately distributed genes is intended to assist in diagnostic, phylogenetic and functional research relating to the evolutionary adaptation of genus Listeria.
