Eukaryotic gene prediction with Augustus plugin for Geneious Prime

Augustus Plugin

Augustus is a gene prediction program for eukaryotes written by Mario Stanke and Oliver Keller. It can be used as an ab initio program, which means it bases its prediction purely on the sequence. This plugin allows you to choose an organism then run Augustus and save the results as annotations on your sequence.

Quick Start

Install the plugin by downloading the gplugin file and dragging it into Geneious or use the plugin manager in Geneious (under Tools - Plugins in the menu).

Once installed, run the plugin by selecting a nucleotide sequence and choosing Annotate & Predict - Find Genes with Augustus from the menu. Results are saved as annotations on your sequence.
