Dear Friends,

Could you please suggest a promising tool for prokaryotic gene prediction and annotation? I have been using DNAMaster, but it comes with a GUI and not stable to work with. And, I am looking for a standalone method for prediction and annotation.

Thanks, DK

By the way, phages are viruses. They probably have different tools for gene prediction.

like this one A: What Are Some Good Interactive Circular Genome Browsers?

Prokka would be the first one that comes to mind and I guess most commonly used one as well

as pointed out by natasha.sernova , if the organism you are working on is a virus (phages) then prokka is likely not the most suitable tool

In a lot of cases viral genes resemble host genes and a lot of bacterial genomes contain phages so prokka (prodigal actually) will find them. Other viruses' genes might not be detected by prokka

Try one of the following tools that Nick Waters benchmarked:

Phaster and ProphET are some of the more widely used. As with most predictors though, every tool gives you a different answer.

Take them with a grain of salt.

A quick search on google talk about VAPiD or VIGOR.
Otherwise abinitio tools like GeneMark might do the job.
