[…] licon sequencing and whole-genome sequencing (WGS). It is worth noting that RepeatHMM is different from several previously published tools, such as RepeatMasker [], tandem repeat finder (TRF) [], and TRhist [], which screen for simple/intersperse repeats only for a query sequence. RepeatHMM is also different from lobSTR [], which infers microsatellites from short-read sequencing data, or PacmonsTR […]
