Tools to find ORF:
Definition:an open reading frame (ORF) is a portion of an organism’s genome which contains a sequence of bases that could potentially encode a protein. It is defined by a stop codon. An ORF goes from a stop codon to a stop codon.
Stop codons: TAA, TAG, TGA. It is different from a protein coding gene because a PCG is contained within an ORF and it is defined by a start codon and a stop codon.
Sequerome links blast results to ORF finder and gives a neat result.
