Indidon [http://http://www.uwaterloo.ca/~ajvilleg] written by Andre
Villegas (Univ. Waterloo, Canada) has been added to Online Analysis
Tools [http://molbiol-tools.ca]. 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
(ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/genbank/genomes/). 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."
