pseudofinder website  

Pseudofinder is a bioinformatics tool that detects pseudogene candidates from annotated genbank files of bacterial and archaeal genomes.

It has been tested mostly on genbank (.gbf/.gbk) files annotated by Prokka with the --compliant flag (i.e. including both /gene and /CDS annotations).
