SPIDEY :mRNA to genomic alignment
EchinoDB :EchinoDB is a database consisting of amino acid sequence orthoclusters from 42 echinoderm transcriptomes.
Phylip 3.66:phylogenetic analysis
- Note: be sure to install libxaw7 and dev dbg headers packages before
- Note: This package is compiled from the latest version, not the EMBOSS
integrated phylip 3.6, which can be done by './configure --prefix=/usr/local'; not debian phylip 3.6.1.
Molphy 2.3b: Maximum Likelihood.
Tree-Puzzle 5.2: Maximum Likelihood.
Note: The document can be found in /usr/local/share/genescan. Three trained models are available: HumanIso.smat, Arabidopsis.smat, Maize.smat.My personal experience is that Humalso is much better than other two for sea urchin.example: genscan /usr/local/share/genscan/HumanIso.smat mycontig.fasta
Note: The document can be found in /usr/local/share/GlimmerHMM. Two trained models are available: arabidopsis and rice. Not good for sea urchin. But user can train their own model. example: glimmerhmm
Contig600303.fasta –d /usr/local/share/GlimmerHMM/trained_dir/arabidopsis/
GeneZilla, 1.0, former TigerScan
Note: Only one model trained for human available now(/usr/local/share/genezilla). User has to go genezilla directory to run the program. example: ./genezilla human.iso ~/mycontig.fasta
