Performance for human using EST evidence. Sensitivity (Sn) and specificity (Sp) were evaluated at the gene, exon and nucleotide levels and reported as percentages. Also shown are the average number of genes and exons predicted for each cross-validation fold. The column headings indicate the predictor and informants used.
