Direct mapping of symbolic DNA sequence into frequency domain in global repeat map algorithm

2012
Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3592446
PMID: 22977183
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gks721

[…] ons comparing different repeat finding algorithms have been made for some sequences [e.g. (,,)]. For example, testing five commonly used repeat finding programs (TRF, Sputnik, Mreps, RepeatMasker and STAR) across several eukaryotic genomes, it was found major divergence in the repeats detected, depending on the program, and more significantly, depending on parameter setting selected (). A meta-ana […]

Repeat or not repeat?—Statistical validation of tandem repeat prediction in genomic sequences

2012
Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 3488214
PMID: 22923522
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gks726

[…] odel of TR evolution. Given the often short TR unit lengths and thus low information content with respect to the TR evolution, simpler models should be preferred. Therefore, we assumed an ultrametric star phylogeny to describe the divergence of TR units from the ancestral unit. The mutation process was described by Markov models of substitution: the K80 model for DNA sequences () and the LG model […]

Detecting microsatellites within genomes: significant variation among algorithms

2007
BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1876248
PMID: 17442102
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-8-125

[…] o hexanucleotide microsatellites using five algorithms representative of the different classes of methods, namely Mreps [], Sputnik [] (first approach), TRF [] (second approach), RepeatMasker [], and STAR [] (third approach). Three of them (Sputnik, TRF, and RepeatMasker) are rather widely used by biologists. These distributions were characterized by microsatellite number and size, divergence from […]
