  1. 946 human transcripts with associated Swissprot entries for which unambiguous homologs could be identified in the murine refseq collection were evaluated by the current method and 9 other approaches to discriminate coding from non-coding transcripts [13]http://www.landesbioscience.com/journals/rnabiology/supplement/frith-supdata.zip. The table shows the number of transcripts evaluated as coding by each method, the mean number of other methods in agreement with the recovered evaluation and the percentage of transcripts for which each method agreed with the majority conclusion of the other methods
