This interface allows the user to search for potentially horizontally transferred genes (HGT) which are gathered in genomic regions
(Region of Genomic Plasticity). The RGP_Finder method first starts with the identification of synteny breaks between a query genome
and other close genomes chosen from the ones available in our PkGDB database. Then it searches for HGT features
(tRNA hotspot, mobility genes), and for compositional bias (AlienHunter (Vernikos and Parkhill, 2006), SIGI-HMM (Waack et al., 2006),
and GC deviation computation) in the query genome. RGP_Finder is able to characterize genomic regions presenting both to a synteny
break and several features specific to Genomic Islands, regions with HGT features only, and regions associated with synteny break only.
The graphical interfaces associated to this tool are useful to explore in detail the predicted regions, using also the comparative
genomic context available in MaGe.
