Gene structure prediction V1.5

EuGène[1] was trained based on our set of Physcomitrella patens reference genes, transcripts (ESTs and FLcDNAs) and homology evidences. While the resulting gene structures were quite promising, the prediction accuracy could still be improved combining all existing gene structure predictions and transcript alignments using EVidenceModeler[2]. The obtained gene structures, comprising only CDS exons, were updated using the PASA[3] alignment evidence to correct exon boundaries, adding UTRs and models for alternative splicing.
