I have already done some predictions with the Fgenesh web version, but it takes a long time since I have to submit each contig separately. Thus I'm interesting in writing a script that would use the fgenesh module. I have seen the documentation is quite old, so I wonder whether the BioPerl module runs on the latest version.

I'm not sure to tell the truth, but it shouldn't be terribly hard to update unless the API has changed significantly.

Have you looked at the MAKER pipeline?  I understand it uses quite a few of the gene predictors (FGENESH included).


It doesn't appear they use bioperl-run modules for these, though.
