  Description     : postprocessing and classification of LTR retrotransposons

LTRsift is a graphical bioinformatics tool for semi-automatic postprocessing of de
novo predicted LTR retrotransposon annotations, such as the ones generated by
LTRharvest and LTRdigest (included in the genometools package). 
Its user-friendly GTK interface displays LTR retrotransposon candidates, 
their putative families and their internal structure in a hierarchical fashion, 
allowing the user to "sift" through the sometimes large results of de novo 
prediction software. It also offers customizable filtering and classification 

List of features:
* wizard-guided project creation and automated pre-classification
* "drag-and-drop'' manual family assignment
* candidate filtering based on dynamic, customizable rule sets, 
  defined in a simple programming language (Lua)
* reference matching against custom FASTA files (BLAST required)
* ORF detection
* concise, customizable visualization of candidate structure
* candidate lists can be sorted by column values
