PanOCT, Pan-genome Ortholog Clustering Tool, is a program written in PERL for pan-genomic analysis of closely related prokaryotic species or strains. Unlike traditional graph-based ortholog detection programs, it uses micro synteny or conserved gene neighborhood (CGN) in addition to homology to accurately place proteins into orthologous clusters.
