INTRODUCTION
Artemis is a DNA sequence viewer and annotation tool that allows visualisation
of sequence features and the results of analyses within the context of the
sequence, and its six-frame translation. Artemis is written in Java, reads
EMBL or GENBANK format sequences and feature tables, and can work on sequences
of any size.
Artemis is a free genome browser and annotation tool that allows visualisation
of sequence features, next generation data and the results of analyses within
the context of the sequence, and also its six-frame translation. Artemis is written
in Java, and is available for UNIX, Macintosh and Windows systems. It can read
EMBL and GENBANK database entries or sequence in FASTA, indexed FASTA or raw format.
Other sequence features can be in EMBL, GENBANK or GFF format.
ACT is a DNA sequence comparison viewer based on Artemis. The name ACT stands
for Artemis Comparison Tool. ACT is written in Java, reads EMBL or GENBANK
format sequences and feature tables, and can work on sequences of any size.
ACT is a free tool for displaying pairwise comparisons between two or more DNA
sequences. It can be used to identify and analyse regions of similarity and
difference between genomes and to explore conservation of synteny, in the context
of the entire sequences and their annotation.
