New computer program detects overlooked gene segments: Previous estimates of human gene number too low

Although conventional computer programs for analyzing DNA detect many parts of genes with ease, they fail when it comes to detecting the very first pieces of genes, and the nearby "on" switches of genes called promoters. Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have now developed a computer program that is especially good at finding these first segments and "on" switches of genes within the human genome sequence.
