Database Description

Polymorphix is a database of intraspecific sequence polymorphism, structured under the ACNUC ( sequence database management system. It allows one to select sets of within-(eukaryotic)species sequences families, and to visualize multiple alignments and phylogenetic trees. Polymorphix is useful for meta-analyses of population genomics, and as a bibliographic tool in population genetics. Families in Polymorphix are groups of sequences sharing at least 80% similarity. Multiple alignments were made with Mabios. Outgroup have been added when available (78% similarity required), and aligned to the within-species profile with Clustalv-1.81. Sequence alignments and Neighbour-Joining phylogenetic trees can be viewed. You can use them, together with sequence annotations and bibliographic links, to decide wether the selected families are relevant for your study.
