The ENCODE gene prediction workshop (EGASP) has been organized to evaluate how well state-of-the-art automatic gene finding methods are able to reproduce the manual and experimental gene annotation of the human genome. We have used Softberry gene finding software to predict genes, pseudogenes and promoters in 44 selected ENCODE sequences representing(More)
In computational analysis, the RING-finger domain is one of the most frequently detected domains in the Arabidopsis proteome. In fact, it is more abundant in Arabidopsis than in other eukaryotic genomes. However, computational analysis might classify ambiguous domains of the closely related PHD and LIM motifs as RING domains by mistake. Thus, we set out to(More)
The first generation of genome sequence assemblies and annotations have had a significant impact upon our understanding of the biology of the sequenced species, the phylogenetic relationships among species, the study of populations within and across species, and have informed the biology of humans. As only a few Metazoan genomes are approaching finished(More)
Tribolium castaneum is a member of the most species-rich eukaryotic order, a powerful model organism for the study of generalized insect development, and an important pest of stored agricultural products. We describe its genome sequence here. This omnivorous beetle has evolved the ability to interact with a diverse chemical environment, as shown by large(More)
The rapidly increasing amount of plant genomic sequences allows for the detection of cis-elements through comparative methods. In addition, large-scale gene expression data for Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) have recently become available. Coexpression and evolutionarily conserved sequences are criteria widely used to identify shared cis-regulatory(More)
MOTIVATION Despite the growing volume of data on primary nucleotide sequences, the regulatory regions remain a major puzzle with regard to their function. Numerous recognising programs considering a diversity of properties of regulatory regions have been developed. The system proposed here allows the specific contextual, conformational and physico-chemical(More)
