[…] the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) [] (Additional file ). Available unigenes from ten fungal species were downloaded from the JGI and The Gene Index Project (http://compbio.dfci.harvard.edu/tgi/). The ABFGP method uses several third party applications: BLAST 2.2.8, ClustalW 2.0.12, HMMER 2.3.2, SignalP 3.0, TMHMM 2.0, transeq, getorf and tcode from EMBOSS 6.2.0. […]
