CpGProD is a web-based program that predicts promoters containing a high density of CpG islands _______

A. in archea genomic sequences

B. in mammalian genomic sequences

C. in eukaryotic and bacterial genomic sequences

D. only in bacterial genomic sequences

I had been asked this question by my school principal while I was bunking the class.

My question is based upon Prediction Algorithms in chapter Promoter and Regulatory Element Prediction of Bioinformatics

Correct answer is B. in mammalian genomic sequences

To explain: It calculates moving averages of GC% and CpG ratios (observed/expected) over a window of a certain size (usually 200 bp). When the values are above a certain threshold, the region is identified as a CpG island.
