[…] found, the hmm can be retrained to include them, new multiple alignments are made, and the process is repeated., alexandersson et al. implemented a cross-species gene finding and alignment program slam using gphmm, which simultaneously aligns and predicts genes in two orthologous sequences. the input to slam consists of two sequences and an approximate alignment . the approximate alignment […]

[…] multiple genomes for improving gene predictions. numerous methods have used conservation patterns in pairwise sequence alignments to distinguish coding from non-coding regions in eukaryotic (slam , sgp2 , twinscan , , , guigó et al. ) or prokaryotic genomes (walker et al. ,). the use of more than two sequences to improve prediction of gene boundaries is a more recent addition., rast […]

[…] related species (e.g., mouse), one can combine the conserved information of the two species to develop a more refined probability models for the gene portions (rosetta [], cem [], twinscan [], slam [], and sgp2 [–]). while these approaches have been effective in predicting genes, a noticeable drawback is that the more refined a probability model is, the more constraints there are for a dna […]

[…] for comparative gene prediction by combining the pair-hmm (widely used for sequence alignment and comparison) and the generalized hmm (used by many gene finders). comparative gene-finders such as slam [] and twain [] are implemented based on the gphmm framework. a similar model has been also proposed in [] to compare two dna sequences and jointly analyze their gene structures., although […]

[…] of candidate gene models., cross-species comparisons have been shown to be effective in locating genes and predicting gene structures. de novo gene finders such as sgp2 [], twinscan [,], nscan [], slam [], saga [], dogfish [], exoniphy [], shadower [], contrast [] have improved upon ab initio gene finders through comparison with genomic sequences of reference species, capturing phylogenetic […]
