Glimmer 3.02b / GlimmerM 2.5.1
Glimmer (Gene Locator and Interpolated Markov ModelER) is a system for finding genes in microbial DNA, especially the genomes of bacteria, archaea, and viruses. Glimmer ¬†uses interpolated Markov models (IMMs) to identify the coding regions and distinguish them from noncoding DNA.
GlimmerM is a¬†gene finder derived from Glimmer, but developed specifically for eukaryotes. It is based on a dynamic programing algorithm that considers all combinations of possible exons for inclusion in a gene model and chooses the best of these combinations.
