Comments "To calculate the percentage of genes that are trans-spliced to SL1[spliced leader 1], [researchers] used a GFF (Gene-Finding Format) file, elegansWS153.gff, from WormBase ( link , release WS153, date January, 2006). [They] obtained 7,657 entries containing ‘ SL1 ’ , which corresponds to 42.6% of the total number of transcripts that have transcript evidence (17,964 out of 22,901- this includes alternative isoforms of some genes) (WormBase WS153 release notes)."
