This track shows gene predictions using the N-SCAN gene structure prediction program with multiple Drosophila species as informant.


N-SCAN combines biological-signal modeling in the target genome sequence along with information from a multiple-genome alignment to generate de novo gene predictions. It extends the TWINSCAN target-informant genome pair to allow for an arbitrary number of informant sequences as well as richer models of sequence evolution. N-SCAN models the phylogenetic relationships between the aligned genome sequences, context-dependent substitution rates, insertions, and deletions.
