The conservation of intron positions comprises information useful for de novo gene prediction as well as for analyzing the origin of introns. GenePainter maps gene structures onto protein multiple sequence alignments. Gene structures, as provided by e.g. WebScipio, are aligned with respect to the exact positions of the introns (down to nucleotide level) and intron phase. Because gene trees often do not correspond to species trees, intron conservation provides additional and independent information to reconstruct the history of the eukaryotes.
