Abstract: This chapter presents a method called PolyA-iEP that has been developed for the prediction of polyadenylation sites. More precisely PolyA-iEP is a method that recognizes mRNA 3’ends which contain polyadenylation sites. It is a modular system which consists of two main components. The first exploits the advantages of emerging patters and the second is a distance-based scoring method. The outputs of the two components are finally combined by a classifier. The final results reach very high scores of sensitivity and specificity.
