Synteny-based gene model improvement procedure. First, out-map mismatches are identified in the synteny blocks. Second, GeneWise is run to identify candidate genes using out-map mismatches as queries and the corresponding syntenic region as target. Third, predicted genes are examined and compared with other genes in the synteny blocks (proteins encoded by the predicted genes are at least 60% as long as their corresponding query proteins).
