MLOGD

:: DESCRIPTION

MLOGD (Maximum Likelihood Overlapping Gene Detector) is a suite of software for detecting new protein-coding sequences (CDSs) by analysing the pattern of mutations across an input sequence alignment. In particular, the software can be used to detect new CDSs that overlap known CDSs in a different read-frame. Such CDSs can be difficult to detect with standard gene-finding algorithms (see below). The software is particularly useful for analysing virus genome alignments, where overlapping genes and ribosomal frameshifting sites are common.
