Annotation data for each species is extracted from Ensembl database. Protein coding genes are counted only if they contain at least one internal translated exon. Total CDS length is the summation of all internal translated exon length in these genes. Number of splitting is estimated by the number of internal translated exons minus one. Estimated splitting is determined from GRFP simulation.
