GeneContent is a software system to infer the genome phylogeny based on an additive genome distance that can be estimated from the extended gene content data, which contains the genome-wide information (absence of a gene family, presence as single copy or presence as duplicates) across multiple species. GeneContent can also be used to explore the genome-wide evolutionary pattern of gene loss and proliferation.
