Geptop:A Gene essentiality prediction tool for COMPLETE-GENOME based on orthology and phylogeny
Essential genes are absolutely required for the survival of an organism and are therefore considered as the foundation of life. Geptop is a webserver, which first provides a platform to detect essential gene sets over bacterial species, by comparing orthology and phylogeny of query protein sets with essential gene datasets determined experimentally
(from DEG database).
You will get the possibility of essentiality for each gene, the number of predicted essential genes and the estimated accuracy for the genome
by our webserver.

The new Geptop will be coming soon!
