LiSSI (Life-Style-Specific-Islands) is a java tool for predicting life-style-specific genomic islands through evolutionary conservation. It is divided into three sequentially executed modules: evolutionary sequence analysis, island detection, and machine learning.
COLOMBO is a software framework equipped with a GUI for the statistical analysis of sequences of a genome. It can be equipped with different plugins that actually perform the analysis. The current version of COLOMBO is supplied with SIGI-HMM, a tool for the prediction of Genomic Islands.
IGIPT is a web-based integrated platform for the identification of genomic islands (GIs). It incorporates thirteen parametric measures based on anomalous nucleotide composition on a single platform, thus improving the predictive power of a horizontally acquired region, since it is known that no single measure can absolutely predict a horizontally transferred region.
