The first public release of ESTate is now available.

ESTate is a package of Expressed Sequence Tag Analysis Tools Etc.

It may be downloaded from:


Functionality includes:

    o EST clustering

      Rapid comparisons using finite state machines are combined
      with accurate comparisons from dynamic programming,
      by a graph theoretic approach to produce an anytime algorithm
      for EST clustering.

    o Consensus Translation

      An method for prediction of the translation implied by EST
      consensi, based on the use of multiple dynamic programming
      models and various strategies to achieve error tolerance.

    o Some experimental tools for database searching.

All the programs are implemented in C, and have
been tested under Linux, IRIX, Solaris and AIX.

The source code is provided under the terms of
the GNU public licence.
