A method for identification of highly conserved elements and evolutionary analysis of superphylum Alveolata

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5028923
PMID: 27645252
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1257-5

[…] this method with 8-bp words to identify and analyze UCEs of at least 100 bp in plants and to expand the UCE sets in vertebrates.Christley et al. [] offered a public domain software embedded into the BioCocoa library. It is based on a combinatorial algorithm that considers pairs of genomes using suffix arrays, after which the intersection is taken for all pairs; no alignments are involved. The met […]


Multiple organism algorithm for finding ultraconserved elements

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2244594
PMID: 18186941
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-9-15

[…] We have provided our algorithm in the BioCocoa library which is the de facto Objective-C bioinformatics framework instead of starting a new software package. The main functionality is provided in two Objective-C classes, BCSuffixArray and […]
