Ancestral superfamily domain repertoires in Eukaryotes


An object of class "Anno" that contains information about domain repertoires (a complete set of domains: domain-ome) in Eukaryotes (including extant and ancestral genomes). This data is prepared based on 1) SUPERFAMILY database which provides domain and architecture assignments to all completely sequenced genomes including eukaryotic genomes; 2) ancestral domain architecture repertoires inferred by applying Dollo parsimony to eukaryotic part of species tree of life (sTOL), from which ancestral superfamily domain and architecture repertoires at all branching points in eukaryotic evolution are inferred. This allows us to list ancestral domain and architecture repertoires that were present at these points. Based on the observed/inferred domain and architecture repertoires, we also define genome-specific plasticity potential for an individual domain as how many different architectures (or architecture diversity) it can be formed in an extant/ancestral genome. As a result, for each genome, domain repertoires (domainome) are represented as a profile of states on domains, where non-zero entry indicates a domain for which how many different architectures have occurred in the genome.
