HMM-based gene structure prediction (multiple genes, both chains). The Fgenesh gene-finder was selected as the most accurate program for plant gene identification. Plant Molecular Biology (2005), 57, 3, 445-460: "Five ab initio programs (FGENESH, GeneMark.hmm, GENSCAN, GlimmerR and Grail) were evaluated for their accuracy in predicting maize genes. FGENESH yielded the most accurate and GeneMark.hmm the second most accurate predictions" (FGENESH identified 11% more correct gene models than GeneMark on a set of 1353 test genes).

Most gene finding parameters presented here were trained by Softberry for its own use and distribution, using proprietary and publicly available data. Some of the parameters were created for our academic customers, including Broad Institute/MIT, Washington University, University of Minnesota and The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR).
