Seeker is a webtool for alignment-free discrimination between bacterial vs. phages DNA sequences, based on a deep learning framework. Seeker is based on an LSTM machine-learning model and does not rely on a reference genome, genomic alignment or any direct genome comparison.
Seeker can utilize classifiers that were trained with
(a) either Python Keras LSTM with embedding layer, or
(b) Matlab trained LSTM with a sequence input layer which was converted to a Keras model.
