Towards a Genome Reverse Compiler
Warren, Andrew Scott
MetadataShow full item record
The Genome Reverse Compiler (GRC) is an annotation tool for prokaryotic genomes. Its name and philosophy are based on analogy with a high-level programming language compiler. In this analogy, the genome is a program in a certain low-level language that humans cannot understand. Given the sequence of any prokaryotic genome, GRC produces its corresponding "high-level program"--its annotation. GRC works in a completely automatic manner, using standard input and output formats. The goal is to provide an open-source, easy-to-run, very efficient annotation program.
