Enables the evaluation of multi-gene models for the Arabidopsis genome. AraSet is a data set of contigs of validated genes and contains 566 014 nucleotides divided in 74 loci. It is composed of 57, 14 and 3 sequences containing respectively two, three and four genes in a row. There are 168 genes in the database, with a total of 1028 exons and 860 introns, and 94 entire intergenic sequences.
