A machine learning strategy to identify candidate binding sites in human protein-coding sequence
Background: The splicing of RNA transcripts is thought to be partly promoted and regulated by sequences embedded within exons. Known sequences include binding sites for SR protein...

Splice Site Prediction Using Artificial Neural Networks
A system for utilizing an artificial neural network to predict splice sites in genes has been studied. The neural network uses a sliding window of nucleotides over a gene and predi...
