Due to recent developments in sequencing, complete genomes are being determined at an ever increasing rate. However, the correct identification of many genes remains a major challenge. In order to identify and determine the structure of genes, for which no experimental information is available yet, and spliced-alignments between the transcript and the genomic sequence cannot be produced, we need to use predictive in silico methods, based on intrinsic approaches. Our lab is involved in many gene and genome annotation projects, mostly of plants, but also of animals, and protest organisms. Check the 'Genomes' section of our website for more information.
