    Genome-wide prediction of cis-acting RNA elements regulating tissue-specific pre-mRNA alternative splicing

    Human genes undergo various patterns of pre-mRNA splicing across different tissues. Such variation is primarily regulated by trans-acting factors that bind on exonic and intronic cis-acting RNA elements (CAEs). H...
