EvidentialGene: Gene-omes from mRNA-seq assembly overtake genome gene-predictions.
An existing dogma in genome projects, that quality of a gene set is dependent on the 
quality of the genome assembly, is no longer accurate.  mRNA-seq assembly now does as well 
or better than genome-gene modelling.

This is a 'reference-free' gene set assembly from mRNA-seq, without reference made to
a genome assembly nor training/mapping from other species genes. As such it has different 
values than genome-based gene sets, one important one is no external artifacts or errors 
contribute to these genes.  Any protein orthology measured has not been influenced by 
gene modelling using other species (with their artifacts), and genome assembly errors.
