Abstract We give a test for protein coding regions which is based on simple and universal differences between protein-coding and noncoding DNA. The test is simple enough to use without a computer and is completely objective. The test has been thoroughly proven on 400,000 bases of sequence data: it misclassifies 5\% of the regions tested and gives an answer of "No Opinion" one fifth of the time. We predict some new coding and noncoding regions in published sequences.
