CONDOP: Condition-Dependent Operon Predictions

An implementation of the computational strategy for the comprehensive analysis of condition-dependent operon maps in prokaryotes proposed by Fortino et al. (2014) <DOI:10.1186/1471-2105-15-145>. It uses RNA-seq transcriptome profiles to improve prokaryotic operon map inference.
