EggNOG is a database of biological information hosted by the EMBL. It is based on the original idea of COGs (clusters of orthologous groups) and expands that idea to non-supervised orthologous groups constructed from numerous organisms. eggNOG stands for evolutionary genealogy of genes: Non-supervised Orthologous Groups.



EggNOG. This class extends list and contains:

  1. "cogFunctionalCategories": Cluster of Orthologous Groups (COG) functional category information.

  2. "annotations": up-to-date functional descriptions and categories for Eukaryotes Non-supervised Orthologous Groups (euNOG) and Non-supervised Orthologous Groups (NOG) protein identifiers.

The EggNOG README contains additional useful reference information.
