Table 3 Intra- and inter-species gene prediction accuracy Intra-species performance figures derived from 5-fold cross-validation are along the major diagonal in bold. At Arabidopsis thaliana, Ce Caenorhabditis elegans, Dm Drosophila melanogaster, Os Oryza sativa. SN and SP correspond to sensitivity and specificity.
