Abstract

The Basic Protocol describes the use of GrailEXP, the latest version of the gene finding system from Oak Ridge National Laboratory. GrailEXP provides gene models, by making use of sequence similarity with Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) and known genes. GrailEXP also provides alternatively spliced constructs for each gene based on the available EST evidence. The Support Protocol describes the use of the Genome Analysis Pipeline, a web application which allows users to perform comprehensive sequence analysis by offering a selection from a wide choice of supported gene finders, other biological feature finders, and database searches.
