GOtcha: a new method for prediction of protein function assessed by the annotation of seven genomes
Background: The function of a novel gene product is typically predicted by transitive assignment of annotation from similar sequences. We describe a novel method, GOtcha, for pred...

Gene prediction using the Self-Organizing Map: automatic generation of multiple gene models
Background: Many current gene prediction methods use only one model to represent proteincoding regions in a genome, and so are less likely to predict the location of genes that ha...
