The identification of all genes is one of the goals of any genome-sequencing project. Apart from laboratory techniques, genes can also be identified by using computational, homology-based or ab initio (model-based) methods, which differ in their performance according to the sequence being analysed. With the growing number of sequenced genomes, comparative genomics is becoming the most powerful method for deciphering genomes.
