    Softberry completed fully automatic annotation of Human genome by FGENESH++ program. Of 38,570 predicted genes, 27,851 (72%) have homologs in NR protein database. Results are presented for public in the Genome Browser of UCSC Human Genome Project Team site


Fgenesh++ predictions are based on Softberry's gene finding software. Fgenesh++ uses both HMMs and protein similarity to find genes in a completely automated manner.

Fgenesh++  uses FGENESH and FGENESH+ programs. Fgenesh is ab initio gene prediction works very fast processing Human genome sequences for about 4 hours.
The programs also have parameters for many model organisms such as Drosophila,
Yeast, Dicot and Monocot plants.

Later we plan to annotate also CELL LOCATION of predicted proteins
