NetStart produces neural network predictions of translation start in vertebrate and Arabidopsis thaliana nucleotide sequences. NetStart has been trained on cDNA-like sequences and will therefore presumably have better performance for cDNAs and ESTs. We have not tested the performance on genome data which may contain introns adjacent to the start codon.
