From this image We can see several exons that are actually introns in other genes. It's not a really a different gene, it's an alternative splicing of a gene. My background is not biology so is it ...
Intron/exon sequence detection seems to involve statistical prediction which can at best deliver a guess (until experimentally confirmed) as to where the splice site is. What are the reasons why ...
Are the introns present in a nascent rna molecule removed simultaneously or are they removed in some sort of sequential fashion or is removal completely random?
I've got an annotated ANNOVAR file with 300.000 nucleotide variants of 4 genomes. There's one thing I don't understand when looking at the data: Why are the variant frequencies so low in comparison to ...
