I have to deal with two human genes sharing an obvious common ancestor.
Is there any computationnal tool that could give me the date of the
duplication event using the sequence alignment?

all phylogenetics servers i've found allow only to produce interspecies
One of the two genes have been demonstrated to exist in various species
... my aim is to determine in which phylum i could hope to find the
second gene. (primates? mammals or vertebrates?)
