Comparative Genomic Analysis Tools (CGAT)

These programs can handle arbitrarily large DNA sequences. They were written to analyze genomic sequences. Sets of BAC or PAC analyses can be merged as the sequence of overlapping clones becomes available.

The programs run on a UNIX platform, and all use a text interface. They are written in Perl (with the exception of lineplot, written in C), and can thus be easily ported to the Mac or to Windows. Some of the programs have been ported the Macintosh.
