GLIMMER stands for Gene Locator and Interpolated Markov ModelER. GLIMMER was the first bioinformatics system for finding genes that used the interpolated Markov model formalism. It is very effective at finding genes in bacteria, archaea, and viruses, typically finding 98-99% of all protein-coding genes.
