Table 2 Calculation of the TelNet score

From: TelNet - a database for human and yeast genes involved in telomere maintenance

Feature Score
Identification in a TM related screen (added up if present in multiple screens) 1
TM significance is “validated” 3
If TM significance is “predicted”, the gene yields 10% of the orthologue’s TelNet score 0-1
Cellular function contains the term “telomere” 1.5
A TM function is assigned (added up for multiple functions) 0.5
TM function is “shelterin”, “telosome” or “telomerase” 0.5-2
  1. The different features and their associated TelNet score are listed. The final value is calculated as the sum of the different entries and can reach a maximum value of 10
