New Program from CSHL Detects Non-Coding Regions, Adds New Guess to Human Gene Count | GenomeWeb

A new gene prediction program from Michael Zhang and his colleagues at Cold Spring Harbor Lab could be an effective tool as biologists shift their focus from coding regions of the genome to regulatory regions, according to Zhang.

The program, called FirstEF, is able to detect non-coding first exons — a class of gene segments that has been very difficult to detect by conventional methods that rely on protein coding patterns.
