Recompiling Augustus for short introns

Post by kbseah »

Hello everybody,

I'm interested in gene prediction for a genome that we expect to have short introns. I've seen the previous forum post here: ... hp?f=5&t=9

However in a paper on the Stentor genome, with short 15 nt introns (doi:10.1016/j.cub.2016.12.057), they describe editing three files in the source code of Augustus v3.0.2:,,

Is it still necessary to edit the source code and recompile, as described in that paper?

Thanks, and best regards,
Brandon Seah
