ALGGEN group has developed a software to search for exact patterns in
dna sequences: MREPATT.
Consecutive Multiple REpeated PATTerns search tool: given a
pattern p, searchs for the exact ocurrences of the patterns
p,pp,ppp,... through a set of DNA sequences. Also several graphycal
representations and mappings are given.
You can work with our database (with several chromosomes) or
submit your files (< 5 Mb fasta file compress in zip format is
strongly recommended). If you are interested in any chromosome that
it isn't in our database, you can send us a request.
With this software you can:
. View the visual map of the ocurrences and zoom
. View different matching about:
. Chromosomic stathistical distribution .
. Number of ocurrences for each repetition
. Number of theoretical ocurrences for each
. Differents plots about the search
If you are interested about it and you would test this soft,
you can do it at:
and then in the menu look for:
An example is available in this site.
After test it on the web, if you wish to obtain the codes for
you can send a request to:
