    Background: Computational gene prediction tools routinely generate large volumes of predicted coding exons (putative exons). One common limitation of these tools is the relatively low specificity due to the large amount of non-coding regions. Methods: A statistical approach is developed that...

    Dissociated sponge cells are easily confused with unicellular organisms. This has been an obstacle in the development of sponge-cell lines. We developed a molecular detection method to identify cells of the sponge Dysidea avara in dissociated cell cultures. The 18S ribosomal RNA gene from a...

    The Japanese pufferfish Fugu rubripes with a genome of about 400 Mb is becoming increasingly recognized as a vertebrate model organism for comparative gene analysis (see Elgar 1996 for review). We have isolated and sequenced two Fugu cosmids spanning a genomic region of 66 kb containing the Fugu...

    Background: Identifying protein-coding regions in genomic sequences is an essential step in genome analysis. It is well known that the proportion of false positives among genes predicted by current methods is high, especially when the exons are short. These false positives are problematic...
