Deep landscape update of dispersed and tandem repeats in the genome model of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus, using a series of de novo investigating tools

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4992247
PMID: 27542599
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3015-5

[…] model has been estimated, using RM, to be 1.73 % []. We reinvestigated this number by examining the diversity and number of microsatellites using the FASTA program of the GCG computer package [] and sputnik [] while those of satellite DNAs were investigated using a variety of molecular approaches (for a review see []). Using TRF, which can detect SSRs with repeated units from 1 bp to 2 kbp, we fo […]


Allelic variation at the rpv1 locus controls partial resistance to Plum pox virus infection in Arabidopsis thaliana

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 4479089
PMID: 26109391
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-015-0559-5

[…] hanically inoculated PPV in Cvi-1, a total of twenty molecular markers were developed (see Additional file : Table S3). Microsatellite repeat motifs were identified in Arabidopsis BAC sequences using Sputnik software (http://www.appliedbioinformatics.com.au/projects/ssrPrimer/cgi-bin/index). Simple sequence length polymorphism (SSLP) and Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) were retrieved from the […]


STAMP: Extensions to the STADEN sequence analysis package for high throughput interactive microsatellite marker design

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2644677
PMID: 19183437
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-41

[…] llites are well suited and should thus be correctly recognized in a modern MS design workflow. Of the existing MS marker design pipelines cited above, only SSR PRIMER (using the repeat detection tool SPUTNIK), MSATFINDER (using SPUTNIK or an algorithm designed by the authors) and SAT (also using SPUTNIK) can detect imperfect repeats, however only with a limited accuracy. Finally, even if primers s […]


Comparative BAC end sequence analysis of tomato and potato reveals overrepresentation of specific gene families in potato

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 2324086
PMID: 18405374
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-8-34

[…] Microsatellites were detected using a modified version of the Sputnik software []. Running parameters were set to return all SSRs spanning at least 15 nucleotides, with a motif length between 1 and 5 (i.e., mono-, di-, tri-, tetra-, and penta-nucleotide repeats) […]
