GeneSyno : Simple tool to extract gene sequence from the human genome despite synonymous gene terms

Alsamman M Alsamman, Peter T. Habib

Abstract


Extracting gene data from the human genome is a tricky task. Gene name is the key information for harvesting its sequence, annotation, and other related data. Unfortunately, most human genes have different and multiple names, depending on the database and the resource in which they have been published. Such an issue is delaying the ability of researchers to gather the necessary knowledge and to build their opinion on the function of genes. Here we introduce GeneSyno, a simple, versatile, and reliable tool that can be used to extract gene information from human genome data even though it is synonymous gene names. GeneSyno was written using C and Python programming languages and could easily be integrated into another pipeline

Keywords


Gene information, Human genome, Gene name , Gene annotation, Gene, Synonymous gene name
