Genes that descent from the same ancestral sequence separated by a speciation event.


groups of 1:1 orthologues with one gene per species existing in orthogonal relationships.

Super Orthogroups:
Multiple orthogroups clustered together based on shared protein domains.

Inparalogues (Gene duplications) :
Gene expansions that may have occured after speciation events.
