Alternative splicing increases transcriptome and proteome diversification. Previous analyses aiming at comparing the rate of alternative splicing between different organisms provided contradicting results. These contradicting results were attributed to the fact that both analyses were dependent on the expressed sequence tag (EST) coverage, which varies(More)
Alternative splicing events that are conserved in orthologous genes in different species are commonly viewed as reliable evidence of authentic, functionally significant alternative splicing events. Several recent bioinformatic analyses have shown that conserved alternative exons possess several features that distinguish them from alternative exons that are(More)
