Splice sites are locations in DNA which separate protein-co ding regions (exons) from noncoding regions (introns). Accurate splice sit detectors thus form important components of computational gene finders. We pose splice sit e recognition as a classification problem with the classifier learnt from a labeled data set consisting of only local information around the potential splice site. Note that find ing the correct position of splice sites without using global information is a rather hard… CONTINUE READING
