We have added a little trick for orthology-lovers. Starting from the orthologues page, you can choose to switch to the GeneTree. This will highlight the orthologue of interest, as well as the ancestral node that relates both genes.
Another useful feature added in Ensembl 57 is the possibility to display a set of genes (up to 10) using the Multi-Species view. Click on an internal node and select the “Jump to Multi-species view” option. This will show each of these genes in their respective genomic location, with genomic alignments when available.
