Gene finding and structure prediction

The working sequence

Click here to get a vertebrate contig (20 kb) that will be used for the exercise. For the moment you don't know much about it, but hopefully you will be able to say more at the end of the exercise ;-)

Save the sequence in your local computer (ready to be uploaded to the prediction programs or copy/paste).

The goal of the exercise is to predict all complete genes contained in the sequence using gene prediction programs, EST searches, and species comparisons.

Rules of the game:

Proceed in four steps, using increasing amounts of information not necessarily available for all genes:
