Between one third and one half of the proposed rice genes appear to have no homologs in other species, including Arabidopsis. Compositional considerations, and a comparison of curated rice sequences with ex novo predictions, suggest that many or most of the putative genes without homologs may be false positive predictions, i.e., sequences that are never translated into functional proteins in vivo.
