README for Wise2/Dynamite development Wise2/Dynamite is written and maintained by Ewan Birney <email@example.com>. The paper for Genewise is: GeneWise and Genomewise. Birney E, Clamp M, Durbin R. Genome Res. 2004 May;14(5):988-95. The paper for Dynamite is: Dynamite: a flexible code generating language for dynamic programming methods used in sequence comparison. Birney E, Durbin R. Proc Int Conf Intell Syst Mol Biol. 1997;5:56-64. If you are using Genewise, almost certainly you want to be also using Exonerate is protein2genome mode - for reasonably close genomes (ie, inter-mammalian, or human/chicken), this is as accurate as genewise and about 1,000 times faster. Exonerate was written by Guy Slater and is available at: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/~guy/exonerate/ INSTALLATION ------------- cd into src and type make all possibly followed by make test there is not a make install. binaries are in src/bin after make. The pthreads port no longer cleanly compiles. There was never really that much point in using the pthreads port as (a) you could trivially split databases and recombine the results for the same effect, and this was more sensible as it would work on farm configurations and (b) it was excessively long computation in anycase and probably you are better off with Exonerate. Development Notes: ------------------ Wise2 package is having a bit of a renaissance as my own (ie, Ewan's) coding development package. You will see alot more experimental code in these distributions and programs in development. The old war-horse, genewise is being gently tweaked. There is far more flexible splice site model. However currently this does not give better results that plain old gt-ag for all cases. Because of that the default is to use the gt-ag rule. Other interesting programs that will come out from this include promoterwise - a small region aligner designed for promoters and scanwise - a new protein searching engine.
