Reference species tree

Reference species trees are used for orthology assignment in SwissTree and for Orthology benchmarking. They are based on the comparison of tree topologies from crucial Tree of Life (ToLs) and species tree projects, as well as clade-specific analyses from the literature (for details, see GBE 7:1988-1999(2015). Species are those of the Quest for Orthologs reference datasets.
