Description: 
The Ensembl automatic analysis pipeline used either a GeneWise/Exonerate model from a known protein or a set of aligned cDNAs/ESTs followed by an ORF prediction, and SNAP ab initio models. GeneWise/Exonerate models are further combined with available aligned cDNAs/ESTs to annotate UTRs (for more information see V.Curwen et al., Genome Res. 2004 14:942-50). Pseudogenes are identified on the basis of frameshifted introns (introns of less than 10bp) and intron repeat content (introns of more than 80% repeat).
