Dear all,

I hope my question is not too trivial....
I am looking for a quantitative measure of the degree of genetic  
conservation - basically attaching a high value to highly conserved  
genes such as histones and low values to genes that are not very  
conserved. Ideally there would be a database for all genes of the  
mouse or human genome with a 'conservation' value for each gene.

Does something like this exist ?

Thank you very much in advance !

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail ?
