Open reading frame
finder (ORF finder) finds all open reading frames of a selectable
minimum size in a sequence. It does not assume gene splicing, thus
exons will be predicted as separated ORFS.
Gene finders such as GlimmerM, Genscan, FGenes, GRAIL, and GeneMark.HMM
predict intron-exon boundaries in a genome sequence. Combination of
a number of these programs may be used to predict spliced genes given
a genome sequence.
