Simple Sequence Repeat Locator SSR Locator

Allows users to discover single sequence repeats. SSR Locator permits (1) simple sequence repeats (SSR) discovery, (2) primer design, and (3) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) simulation between the primers obtained from original sequences and other fasta files. It can be used for data mining strategies to find SSR primers in genomic or expressed sequences (ESTs/cDNAs) and for microsatellite discovery in databanks of related species.
