Glimmer 3.02b / GlimmerM 2.5.1 – Microbial Gene-finding System

Glimmer 3.02b / GlimmerM 2.5.1

:: DESCRIPTION

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.
