Gene Finding and Predictions


In this exercise, a previously annotated gene will be used to measure the accuracy of different gene finding approaches. GRAIL, GENSCAN, geneid, FGENESH, GenomeScan, GrailEXP and GENEWISE will be used to annotate the sequence. Both search by signal, content and homology (protein and cDNA sequences) methods will be employed in order to improve the ab initio results. Weak conservation of Start codons will lead to wrong prediction of initial exons in most cases.
