Provides computational tools and methods for high-quality insertion sequence (IS) annotation. ISsaga uses established ISfinder annotation standards and permits rapid processing of single or multiple prokaryote genomes. ISsaga provides general prediction and annotation tools, information on genome context of individual ISs and a graphical overview of IS distribution around the genome of interest.
