Alternative splicing: a perspective of the nematode model-Caenorhabditis elegans


 The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is an important, well-studied organism used in biomedical research as a model for human development, genetics, ageing, and disease. This paper reviews some basic information, recent progress and future challenges for functional genomics and bioinformatics in the area of alternative splicing. It also highlights the unique methodology adopted by us to study and to detect novel alternatively spliced transcripst from C. elegans genome.

Keywords: Alternative splicing, Caenorhabditis elegans, gene/exon prediction, genome analysis.
