Figure 3

Exemplary weight functions derived from trained classifiers based on trimer kernel. Shown are discriminative weight functions for ATG (the most frequent start codon) GGA (having its highest peak in Shine-Dalgarno region), AAA (showing a weak maximum downstream of the start codon) and TTT (with higher values in a region ≈ 20 nt upstream the start codon); function values are plotted versus position. All values are normalized, i.e. they are relative values with respect to a unit global maximum over all functions. The complete set of weight functions for K = 3 can be found on our web page [20].
