A computing system AUG_EVALUATOR for start codons prediction
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.
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).

of eukaryotic cDNAs correlates with a "weak" context of the
start codon. Bioinformatics, vol 17 ,10, 890-900
