Abstract: An increasing number of eukaryotic and prokaryotic genes are being found to have natural antisense transcripts (NATs). Also, there is a growing evidence to suggest that antisense transcription might have a key role in a range of human diseases. Consequently, there have been several recent attempts to set up computational procedures aimed at identifying novel NATs. Our group has developed the AntiHunter program for the identification of expressed sequence tag (EST) antisense transcripts from BLAST output.
