GENSCAN | Prediction of complete gene structures in human genomic DNA


Identifies complete exon/intron structures of genes in genomic DNA. GENSCAN uses a homogeneous fifth order Markov model of noncoding regions and a three periodic (inhomogeneous) fifth order Markov model of coding regions. Features of the program include the capacity to predict multiple genes in a sequence, to deal with partial as well as complete genes, and to predict consistent sets of genes occurring on either or both DNA strands.
