Take a look at the following references.  They all put together ways of
finding orthologous sequences.  I'm using the database Ouyang

Subject: [BiO BB] Is there a good way to find orthologue sequences?

Dear all,
    Is there a good way to find orthologue sequences? I mean, I have a
protein sequence in species A, how could I get all the available
corresponding sequences from other species?  I blast my sequence to nr,
there are just too many hits with low e-value and high identity, so that
some "corresponding" sequences from distant related species could not be
find by blast. Is there any good method for automatically solve this

    Thank you very much. _______________________________________________
