Paper of Interest: OrthoList 2

The new comparative genomic analysis between C. elegans and humans, OrthoList 2 (OL2), was just published early online in GENETICS.  OL2 comes with a new web-based tool that allows for rapid searches of OL2 by worm or human gene identifiers, protein domains (InterPro and SMART), or human-disease associations (OMIM), and also includes updated RNAi resources. The paper describes OL2 and various findings, including how the content of OL2 compares with the original OrthoList tool. The web-based tool for accessing OL2 is here.
