       est2genome is a command line program from EMBOSS (“the European Molecular Biology Open
       Software Suite”). It is part of the "Alignment:Global" command group(s).


   Input section
       -estsequence seqall

       -genomesequence sequence

   Additional section
       -match integer
           Default value: 1

       -mismatch integer
           Default value: 1

       -gappenalty integer
           Cost for deleting a single base in either sequence, excluding introns Default value: 2

       -intronpenalty integer
           Cost for an intron, independent of length. Default value: 40

       -splicepenalty integer
           Cost for an intron, independent of length and starting/ending on donor-acceptor sites
           Default value: 20

       -minscore integer
           Exclude alignments with scores below this threshold score. Default value: 30

   Advanced section
       -reverse boolean
           Reverse the orientation of the EST sequence

       -usesplice boolean
           Use donor and acceptor splice sites. If you want to ignore donor-acceptor sites then
           set this to be false. Default value: Y

       -mode list
           This determines the comparison mode. The default value is 'both', in which case both
           strands of the est are compared assuming a forward gene direction (ie GT/AG splice
           sites), and the best comparison redone assuming a reversed (CT/AC) gene splicing
           direction. The other allowed modes are 'forward', when just the forward strand is
           searched, and 'reverse', ditto for the reverse strand. Default value: both

       -best boolean
           You can print out all comparisons instead of just the best one by setting this to be
           false. Default value: Y

       -space float
           For linear-space recursion. If product of sequence lengths divided by 4 exceeds this
           then a divide-and-conquer strategy is used to control the memory requirements. In this
           way very long sequences can be aligned. If you have a machine with plenty of memory
           you can raise this parameter (but do not exceed the machine's physical RAM) Default
           value: 10.0

       -shuffle integer

       -seed integer
           Default value: 20825

   Output section
       -outfile outfile

       -align boolean
           Show the alignment. The alignment includes the first and last 5 bases of each intron,
           together with the intron width. The direction of splicing is indicated by angle
           brackets (forward or reverse) or ???? (unknown).

       -width integer
           Default value: 50
