AGenDA -- Gene Prediction by Cross-species Sequence Comparison

What you can do:
Predict genes by comparing genomic sequences from evolutionary related organisms to each other.
Highlights:
  • This homology-based gene prediction tool takes pairs of evolutionary related genomic sequences as input data. The server runs CHAOS and DIALIGN to create an alignment of the input sequences and subsequently searches for conserved splicing signals and start/stop codons near regions of local sequence conservation. Genes are predicted based on local homology information and splice signals.
  • The server returns predicted genes together with a graphical representation of the underlying alignment.
Keywords:
