AGenDA is a gene-prediction tool that is based on cross-species sequence comparison. The software tools CHAOS and DIALIGN are used to align a pair of syntenic genomic sequences, e.g. from human and mouse. AGenDA searches for conserved splice sites and start/stop codons at the boundaries of identified sequence homologies in order to identify potential exons; these potential exons are then used to assemble entire gene models.
