FirstEF

:: DESCRIPTION

FirstEF (First Exon Finder) is a 5′ terminal exon and promoter prediction program. It consists of different discriminant functions structured as a decision tree. The probabilistic models are optimized to find potential first donor sites and CpG-related and non-CpG-related promoter regions based on discriminant analysis. For every potential first donor site (GT) and an upstream promoter region, FirstEF decides whether or not the intermediate region can be a potential first exon, based on a set of quadratic discriminant functions.
