Table 2: The detection of coding potential regions in the human-mouse conserved regions. The table lists the number of alignments and the corresponding base pairs of the human sequences in each test set. The true positive rates and false positive rates correspond to the number of alignments that have p-value less than by the present method, where the method with the parameters estimated from human-mouse training sets was applied both to the human-mouse alignments and human-dog alignments. The row of is cited from [12]. The threshold is set so that the false positive rate of the proposed method is the same as that of [12].
