Objective: ProCARs is a program used to reconstruct ancestral gene orders as CARs (Contiguous Ancestral Regions) with a progressive homology-based method. The method runs from a phylogeny tree, without branch lengths needed, with a marked ancestor and a block file. The method output CARs as sets of ordered contiguous blocks in the targeted ancestor. ProCARs has been developped with Python 2.7.5.
