  1. Resource Description
    "Glimmer is a system for finding genes in microbial DNA, especially the genomes of bacteria, archaea, and viruses. Glimmer (Gene Locator and Interpolated Markov ModelER) uses interpolated Markov models (IMMs) to identify the coding regions and distinguish them from noncoding DNA. The IMM approach, described in our Nucleic Acids Research paper on Glimmer 1.0 and in our subsequent paper on Glimmer 2.0 , uses a combination of Markov models from 1st through 8th-order, weighting each model according to its predictive power. Glimmer uses 3-periodic nonhomogenous Markov models in its IMMs. Glimmer was the primary microbial gene finder used at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), where it was first developed, and has been used to annotate the complete genomes of over 100 bacterial species from TIGR and other labs. Glimmer3 predictions are available for all NCBI RefSeq bacterial genomes at their ftp site."
