Why does FragGeneScan, a metagenome gene prediction tool, use a 6-periodic HMM?
Hello, I would like to know why the metagenome gene prediction tool, FragGeneScan uses a 6-periodic HMM to represent the coding region.
Why did this tool choose a 6-cycle HMM instead of a 3-cycle HMM even though the codon is composed of 3 nucleotides?
I couldn't find this answer as far as I read the paper.
six-periodic hidden Markov model (HMM). (The figure below (i) and (vii) [Rho M, et al. 2010])
