CPC (Coding Potential Calculator) is a software to assess the protein-coding potential of a transcript (i.e whether a cDNA/RNA transcript could encode a peptide or not) based on six biologically meaningful sequence features. Tenfold cross-validation on the training dataset and further testing on several large datasets showed that CPC can discriminate coding from noncoding transcripts with high accuracy. Furthermore, CPC also runs an order-of-magnitude faster than a previous state-of-the-art tool and has higher accuracy.
