Twinscan/N-SCAN is our lab's suite of software for gene-structure prediction. We recommend running N-SCAN on our web server (http://mblab.wustl.edu/nscan). Twinscan is currently available for Mammals, Caenorhabditis (worm), Dicot plants, and Cryptococci. N-SCAN is available for human and Drosophila (fruitfly)
module spider twinscan to find out what environment modules are available for this application.
- HPC_TWINSCAN_DIR - installation directory
- HPC_TWINSCAN_BIN - executable directory
- TWINSCAN - twinscan variable for base directory
