New Self-Training Program Predicts Fungi Genes

Science Daily reports that scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a self-training software program that will predict genes in the DNA sequences of fungi. Gene prediction for fungal genomes can help in the development and production of important pharmaceuticals and can also aid in the eradication of pathogenic fungi.

According to Mark Borodovsky, director of Georgia Tech's Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics, hundreds of fungal genome sequencing projects currently underway will benefit from the new program.
