     Method description:
         Algorithm is based on Markov chain model of coding regions and a
probabilistic model to combine it with Start codon potential.

     Accuracy: Preliminary tests of mRNA and their fragments show that the
accuracy of recognition of true ORF is about 100% for typical
     mRNA and is about 99% for EST fragments 500 - 800 bp containing coding
region. It should be less if we will present EST with
     frameshift errors,

     The program output potential CDS positions (where the Start codon is
probable) as well as the longest ORF positions (as an extention of
     this CDS before the start codon). If observed Met codons are recognized as
internal, the CDS and ORF will have the same positions).
