This tool repairs a broken GTF file that does not contain all genes and transcripts. A proper GTF file lists genes, transcripts and exons. However some tools only add exons to the GTF file. AddGenesAndTranscriptsToGtf adds genes and transcripts to a GTF file, based on the exons available in an input GTF file.
