VBI Study Indicates Prokaryotic Gene-Finding Algorithms Overlook Hundreds of Gene Families

The VBI team estimated that at least 1,153 candidate genes from 380 gene families are missing from current prokaryotic genome annotations. In addition, the researchers identified nearly 39,000 intergenic open reading frames that are similar to currently annotated genes, which they termed "missing annotations."
