FGENESH_GC - Program for predicting multiple genes in genomic DNA sequences
A version of FGENESH program including NONCANONICAL GC dinucleotide in donor splice sites is installed to use on-line.
This program is useful to analyze ALTERNATIVE gene structure, where non-standard splice
sites are often found (see also FGENES-M program to predict alternative gene variants)
and create A SET of GENES and PROTEINS absent in standard gene prediction.
Donor GC splice site is accounting for the major part of non-standard splice sites in human genes. It present about 0.6% of all splice sites and observed
in more than 5% of human genes.
Prediction genes on large scale genomic sequences will contain hundreds of GC-donor exons and required programs which will predict their
The noncanonical splice sites were investigated by us recently (Burset, Seledtsov and Solovyev,
2000, Nucleic Acids Res., 28(21), 4364-4375) and we received about 20000
verified by EST splice sites. We received a very strong GC-donor site weight matrix which is used in gene prediction program.
We have developed this variant of program to predict GC-donor exons in addition to standard exons and we preserve the accuracy of program on the
standard genes. Testing the program on 68 human genes with at least one GC donor site shows that FGENESH (GC) provide 10% higher rate of exact
exon prediction for such group and 5% higher accuracy on the nucleotide level.

(IN THIS EXAMPLE 2nd EXON HAVING GC-DONOR SITE IS FOUND, and it is LOST by STANDARD gene finders)
G - predicted gene number, starting from start of sequence;
Str - DNA strand (+ for direct or - for complementary);
Feature - type of coding sequence: CDSf - First (Starting with Start codon), CDSi - internal (internal exon), CDSl - last coding segment, ending with stop codon);
TSS - Position of transcription start (TATA-box position and score);
Start and End - Position of the Feature;
Weight - Log likelihood*10 score for the feature;
ORF - start/end positions where the first complete codon starts and the last codon ends.
