Ab initio diagram

and gene

products

Figure is clear and manually constructed (ie, is not a screenshot). All features are labelled (exons, introns, start, stop, direction, splice sites). Predicted product of all genes included. All relevant details included (% similarity, % identity and E values). Clear, descriptive figure caption/legend.
