Indidon [http://] written by Andre
Villegas (Univ. Waterloo, Canada) has been added to Online Analysis
Tools []. This Java-based program reads GenBank
*.ffn files (FASTA formatted genome gene files) and provides one with a
numeric and percentage usage of start codons.  FFN files can be
downloaded for sequenced genomes from the GenBank genome site
( For bacteriophage and other
smaller genomes create the file using the "search genome" function at
NCBI and select "Views - coding regions."  From the next screen use
"Save - FASTA nucleotide."
