A computing system AUG_EVALUATOR for start codons prediction





MOTIVATION

        Analysis of translation start sites is very important field of computational biology due to their key role in prediction of the coding region in cDNA sequences.

RESULTS

        The program is using weight matrices derived from eukaryotic cDNA sequences. Problems of start codon predition are discussed in our paper (reference is given below).
