This is the homepage of GenRGenS, a software dedicated to random generation of genomics sequences that supports several classes of models, including Markov chains, HMM, context-free grammars, PROSITE patterns and more.

GenRGenS is being developped as a collaboration between Bioinformatics group of LRI Orsay and group BIG (Bioinformatique des Génomes) of IGM Orsay by Alain Denise, Yann Ponty and Michel Termier.

Academic users are invited (pretty please?;)) to cite the following paper:
