Following characterization, estimates show that between 92% and 94% of all human genes are capable of alternative splicing, a post-transcriptional modification that rearranges how the genetic code is read and turned into functional proteins. Alternative splicing increases proteome diversity; therefore, it makes sense to include these events in proteomic analyses. Such splicing events occur in both healthy and disease states.
