FRont-End for Sequence COmparison
The aim is to develop a new visualisation tool that allows effective comparative genome sequence analysis.
The program will compare multiple sequences from putitatively homologous regions in different species. Results from various different existing analysis programs, such as gene prediction, protein homology and regulatory sequence prediction programs shall be visualised and used to find corresponding sequence domains.
The program functions as an stand-alone application and also over the World Wide Web. With this in mind it is being developed using the Java programming language.
