Given a query cluster, GCQuery finds related gene clusters on a given genome.
The GCQuery source code, including sample input and output files, can be compiled under the Unix/Linux environment. The source code includes the NCBI C ToolKit, which is used for BLAST search. The following steps will create a directory called gcquery. Further instructions are in the README file that is also included with the download.
