StartScan is a tool to detect translation initiation sites (TIS) in genomic sequences. Due to its efficient design, StartScan shows state-of-the-art performance on genome wide TIS detection, while at the same time being a fast annotation tool. So far, the model only works for Human, but models for other organisms can be trained upon request.
