A basic evaluation of the Coding-Potential Assessment Tool in Blast2GO

RNA-seq technologies detect coding as well as multiple forms of noncoding RNA. RNA-seq can accurately measure gene and transcript abundance as well as identify known and novel features of a transcriptome. While the coding transcripts will lead to effector proteins, the non-coding transcripts are usually involved in the gene expression regulation and in the transcription and translation machinery. In this

Coding Potential Assessment Tool

This video shows how to use the ‘Coding-Potential Assessment Tool‘ which allows distinguishing the coding transcripts from the non-coding transcripts. This can be achieved using prebuilt models or building a species-specific model from the NCBI database. The results of the coding potential can be cross-checked with the Blast results and may allow discovering some novel mRNA.
