Gene Prediction in Metagenomic Fragments with Deep Learning

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 5698827
PMID: 29250541
DOI: 10.1155/2017/4740354

[…] dictor, we also implemented Meta-MFDL on TesData700 and TesData120 testing datasets derived from 13 species (i.e., 10 bacteria and 3 archaea) and compared with Orphelia [, ], FragGeneScan [], MGC [], MetaGUN [], and Meta-MFSVM predictors. The overall accuracies of Meta-MFDL, Meta-MFSVM, Orphelia, FragGeneScan, MGC, and MetaGUN on the two independent testing datasets (i.e., TesData700 and TesData12 […]


An introduction to the analysis of shotgun metagenomic data

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 4059276
PMID: 24982662
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2014.00209

[…] y gene that has been discovered to date. There are several tools that can be used for de novo gene prediction, including MetaGene (), Glimmer-MG (), MetaGeneMark (), FragGeneScan (), Orphelia (), and MetaGun (). In , many of these methods were compared using statistical simulations. The authors found that their performance varied as a function of read properties (e.g., length and sequencing error […]
