Abstract

According to the most recent estimates, the number of human genes is possibly–but not certainly–between 20,000 and 25,000. To contribute strategies to reduce this uncertainty, several groups working on computational gene prediction met recently at the Welcome Trust Sanger Institute with the goal to test and compare predictive methods of genome annotation.
