GMATo is a useful tool for generating statistical analyzes, such as the quantification of microsatellites in any DNA sample. I used this tool for that purpose, and then I combined multiple samples and compared the quantities of microsatellites in each.
This tool has a very useful and clear graphical interface, with a perfect windows version. Perfectly what I was looking for. The parameters can be changed easily, the documentation is clear and includes numerous possibilities of applications for the GMATo, not only for identification and quantification of microsatellites in genomic samples. Very accessible, also for the non-bioinformation public. Finally, I would like to adress the fact that the tool is very fast, easy to install and easy to use inside pipelines.
