In what organism, and how accurate do you need the answer to be?
Human genefinding (intron/exon prediction) is a notoriously high-class
problem. Programs are improving but are still substantially
inaccurate. Online resources for human genefinding include:
Gene Finder: http://dot.imgen.bcm.tmc.edu:9331/gene-finder/gf.html
There may be servers out there for GeneID and GeneParser, too, but I
don't have addresses at hand for them.
