The Genome Reverse Compiler (GRC) is an annotation tool for prokaryotic genomes. Its

name and philosophy are based on analogy with a high-level programming language compiler.

In this analogy, the genome is a program in a certain low-level language that humans cannot

understand. Given the sequence of any prokaryotic genome, GRC produces its corresponding

"high-level program"--its annotation. GRC works in a completely automatic manner, using

standard input and output formats. The goal is to provide an open-source, easy-to-run, very

efficient annotation program.
