GTO is a toolkit for genomics and proteomics, namely for FASTQ, FASTA and SEQ formats, with many complementary tools. The toolkit is for Unix-based systems, built for ultra-fast computations. GTO supports pipes for easy integration with the sub-programs belonging to GTO as well as external tools. GTO works as LEGOs, since it allows the construction of multiple pipelines with many combinations. GTO includes tools for information display, randomisation, edition, conversion, extraction, search, calculation, compression, simulation and visualisation. GTO is prepared to deal with very large datasets, typically in the scale of Gigabytes or Terabytes (but not limited).
