MOTIVATION GenBank data are at present lacking alpha satellite higher-order repeat (HOR) annotation. Furthermore, exact HOR consensus lengths have not been reported so far. Given the fast growth of sequence databases in the centromeric region, it is of increasing interest to have efficient tools for computational identification and analysis of HORs from(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of approximate tandem repeats is an important task of broad significance and still remains a challenging problem of computational genomics. Often there is no single best approach to periodicity detection and a combination of different methods may improve the prediction accuracy. Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) has been extensively(More)
AIM To use a novel computational approach, Key-string Algorithm (KSA), for the identification and analysis of arbitrarily large repetitive sequences and higher-order repeats (HORs) in noncoding DNA. This approach is based on the use of key string that plays a role of an arbitrarily constructed "computer enzyme". METHOD A cluster of novel KSA-related(More)
Comparison of human and chimpanzee genomes has received much attention, because of paramount role for understanding evolutionary step distinguishing us from our closest living relative. In order to contribute to insight into Y chromosome evolutionary history, we study and compare tandems, higher order repeats (HORs), and regularly dispersed repeats in human(More)
The main feature of global repeat map (GRM) algorithm (www.hazu.hr/grm/software/win/grm2012.exe) is its ability to identify a broad variety of repeats of unbounded length that can be arbitrarily distant in sequences as large as human chromosomes. The efficacy is due to the use of complete set of a K-string ensemble which enables a new method of direct(More)
Croatia is striving to establish a knowledge-based society founded on international standards of excellence and openness (5,6). The previous 16 years, in which the country went through a turbulent transition from a communist regime to a democratic society and market-driven economy, were not a very productive period in the field of science and research. Less(More)
SUMMARY In Part 1 of this paper 1 we have investigated numerically the quasiperiodic and frequency locked solutions of mathematical model of a robot with one degree of freedom. In this paper we extend our investigations to the region of transient chaos. The zones of chaotic transients are very broad and lie beyond the parameter range of engineering(More)
