Table 4 Improvement of putative genes from TWINSCAN.

From: Improving the specificity of exon prediction using comparative genomics

  RefSeq genes (TP) potential non-genes (FP)

TWINSCAN (w/mouse) S > -0.9 4,826 870
  1. Results based on human-mouse conservation. The number of RefSeq genes is listed in the row of size. The row of TWINSCAN lists the number of putative genes provided by TWINSCAN. The threshold for TWINSCAN is set so that 98% of the corrected predicted genes of TWINSCAN are kept.
