AUGUSTUS is a program that predicts genes in eukaryotic genomic sequences. It can be run on this web server, on a new web server for larger input files or be downloaded and run locally. It is open source so you can compile it for your computing platform. You can now run AUGUSTUS on the German MediGRID. This enables you to submit larger sequence files and allows to use protein homology information in the prediction. The MediGRID requires an instant easy registration by email for first-time users.



AUGUSTUS has currently been trained on species specific training sets to predict genes in the following species. Note that for closely related species usually only one version is necessary. For example, the human version is good for all mammals. Contributions.
