[…] model accounting for variable order motifs to assess the compositional difference between a region within a moving window and the genome. compositionally atypical regions are identified as gis., predictbias examines genomic regions within a moving window and annotates successive orfs with atypical codon usage bias and either atypical gc composition or dinucleotide composition as gis [].

[…] this approach is common for pai prediction, since it is critical to utilize multiple features to discern pais from other gis. several pai detection programs adopt this approach, including paidb , predictbias and pips . these programs often combine composition-based methods, comparative genomics methods, and homology-based methods., both paidb and predictbias firstly identify putative gis […]
