I'm trying to find/use a popular gene finding tool called genBlastG 1.39 (She et al. 2011), but the source website seems to be deprecated, giving me 404 errors. It appears to have not been updated for 7 years. I have tried downloading the source code on linux using:
sudo wget http://genome.sfu.ca/genblast/latest/genblast_v139.zip && sudo unzip genblast_v139.zip && sudo rm genblast_v139.zip
but still get the 404 error. But it has been cited by recent genomics papers (e.g. Navarro-Escalante et al. 2021, Tan et al. 2021), so clearly someone is getting it to work. Does anyone have any ideas on how to use this program?
Or if anyone has newer alternatives, I'm open to that. I see Keilwagen et al. 2018 have created GeMoMa, so I may look into that. The newest OrthoFinder (Emms & Kelly 2019) seems to have some of the same function in order to categorize genes into orthogroups, but I would like to compare the OrthoFinder results with genBlastG, since some papers use genBlastG instead or in addition to OrthoFinder.
Thanks for any feedback!
