KaKs Online Calculation Tool


Calculates the ratio of nonsynonymous (Ka) to synonymous (Ks) nucleotide substitution rates inorder to indicate selective pressures on genes, and can also be used to identify pairwise combinations of genes or branches of gene phylogenetic trees, where encoded proteins may have changed function. Algorithms Implemented: NG (Jukes Cantor Models), LWL (JC-K2P-K2P) and MLWL (K2P-K2P-K2P).
