  • ND, not determined due to technical limitations. Genscan, gene predictions based on transcriptional, translational, and donor/acceptor splicing signals, as well as the length and compositional distributions of exons, introns, and intergenic regions. Geneid is a program that predicts genes in anonymous genomic sequences designed with a hierarchical structure. In the first step, splice sites, start and stop codons are predicted and scored along the sequence using position weight arrays. Next, exons are built from the sites. Exons are then scored as the sum of the scores of the defining sites, plus the log-likelihood ratio of a Markov model for coding DNA. Finally, from the set of predicted exons, the gene structure is assembled, maximizing the sum of the scores of the assembled exons. Known genes or transcripts (Riken cDNAs or ESTs) are shown in italics. Genscan/Geneid, indicates transposon insertion in a locus with both predicted Genscan and Geneid.
