geneid documentation: 1. What is geneid ?

Table of contents:

geneid is a program to predict genic elements as splice sites, exons and genes, along eukaryotic DNA sequences. geneid offers some type of support to integrate predictions from multiple sources and allows to improve the quality of predictions by using sequence homology information.

The program is written in ANSI C and runs on UNIX operating systems such as Linux, Solaris or Irix. Installation, setup and usage are pretty fast and simple and there is a wide range of options to configure the behaviour of the program engine.
