Computation and Visualization of Degenerate Repeats in Complete Genomes
Published on Aug 19, 2000 in Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology
The repetitive structure of genomic DNA holds many secrets to be discovered. A systematic study of repetitive DNA on a genomic or inter-genomic scale requires extensive algorithmic support. The REPuter family of programs described herein was designed to serve as a fundamental tool in such studies. Efficient and complete detection of various types of repeats is provided together with an evaluation of significance, interactive visualization, and simple interfacing to other analysis programs.
