Access to Remote Databases and Applications:

Gene Prediction Tools:
  • BCM Search Launcher. Molecular biology-related search and analysis services available on the WWW by providing a single point-of-entry for related searches.
  • DoubleScan is a program for comparative ab initio prediction of protein coding genes in mouse and human DNA.
  • FGENE software collection from softberry (origin Sanger Inst.).
  • GENEBUILDER is an integrated computing system for protein-coding gene prediction.
  • GeneID is an Artificial Intelligence system for predicting vertebrate gene structure.
  • GeneMachine performs both comparative and predictive gene identification.
  • Genemark relies upon an Inhomogeneous Markov Model to predict genes.
  • Genesplicer detects splice sites in the genomic DNA of various eukaryotes.
  • GeneWise2 compares a protein sequence to a genomic DNA sequence.
  • GenomScan predicts the locations and exon-intron structures of genes in genomic sequences incorporating protein homology information.
  • GENSCAN is a program designed to predict complete gene structure including exons, introns, promoter and poly-adenylation signals, in genomic sequences. It differs from the majority of existing gene finding algorithms in that it allows for partial genes as well as complete genes and for the occurrence of multiple genes in a single sequence, on either or both DNA strands.
  • GENSCAN can also be accessed here.
  • Glimmer is a system for finding genes in microbial DNA and uses Markov models.
  • GlimmerM is a gene finder derived from Glimmer, but developed specifically for eukaryotes.
  • GrailEXP is a software package that predicts exons, genes, promoters, polyas, CpG islands, EST similarities, and repetitive elements.
  • HMMGENE, prediction of vertebrate and C. elegans genes.
  • MetaGene 2.6 allows the researcher to submit sequences to seven gene prediction engines simultaneously to obtain a comprehensive report on sequence features.

  • NETGENE2, intron splice site prediction in human, C. elegans and A. thaliana DNA.
  • NetPlantGene, intron splice sites in Arabidopsis thaliana DNA.
  • NETSTART. Translation start in vertebrate and A. thaliana DNA.
  • NNSPLICE: Splice Site Prediction by Neural Network.
  • ORF Finder is a graphical analysis tool to find open reading frames.
  • PredictGenes: predict and verify gene structure by alignment with homologous proteins.
  • PROMOTER. Transcription start sites in vertebrate DNA.
  • Promoter Inspector. Several tools from the Genomatix.
  • PromoterScan predicts promoter regions based on scoring homologies.

  • TESS finds transcription elements.
  • The GeneSeqer: a method to identify potential exon/intron structure in pre-mRNA by splice site prediction and spliced alignment.
  • The ORF Finder is a graphical analysis tool.
  • tRNAscan searches for tRNA genes in genomic sequences.
  • TWINSCAN exploits the patterns of conservation observed in alignments between a target genomic sequence and its homologous sequence in other organisms.
  • Yeastgene calculates the YZ value of an ORF or a fragment of DNA sequence in Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome.
