This track represents the gene predictions generated by RefSeq. An overview of all the tracks provided by EPD for the amel5 assembly can be seen in table format here.
Gene annotation data was downloaded in GFF format and converted to BED using gff3ToGenePred and genePredToBed.
For a description of the methods used in RefSeq gene prediction,

Thanks to RefSeqGene project for providing this annotation. A
description of the process by which it was produced can be found on the
NCBI web site.
