Description

spidey website  

Spidey is an mRNA-to-genomic alignment program. Spidey has two main goals: find good alignments regardless of intron size; and avoid getting confused by nearby pseudogenes and paralogs. Spidey uses NCBI BLAST and Dot View (another local alignment tool) to find its alignments; since these are both local alignment tools, Spidey does not intrinsically favor shorter or longer introns and has no maximum intron size.
