About this program

This program is designed to speed up the detection and annotation of rare sequence variants, which while been a simple task is a tedious and error prone when done manually especially when analysing large volumes of data.

The program will accept sequence data from ABI electropherogram files which it aligns to a reference sequence. This can be either a plain text file or an annotated file created by Genescreen. When using an annotated reference file Genescreen will calculate a sequence variants' position in the cDNA, genomic and where appropriate the protein sequences.

Selected variants can then be exported to a tab-delimited text file, an LOVD import template file or a web page. Genescreen will also act as a web page editor and so allow it to act as both a static web page and a simple sequence variant database
