Drosophila gene finder performs well in blind test

Tuesday, August 31, 1999

The Genie gene finder, a collaborative project involving the UCSC computational biology group, the human genome informatics group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project, performed very well on a recent blind test of computational gene finding methods performed at Berkeley by the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project, directed by Gerald Rubin. The test was called the Genome Annotation Assessment Project.
