Gathers C++ programs developed for transposable element search and their annotation in large eukaryotic genome sequence. The suite is composed by three programs BLASTER, MATCHER and GROUPER. The results of BLASTER can be treated further by the MATCHER and GROUPER program, but these two last programs can be also used in conjunction with other programs such as RepeatMasker, CENSOR, BLAST, BLAT, … if their outputs are correctly formatted as a BLASTER output file (i.e. *.align).
