For the purpose of identifying evolutionary reticulation events in flowering plants, we determine a large number of paired, conserved DNA oligomers that may be used as primers to amplify orthologous DNA regions using the polymerase-chain reaction (PCR). We develop an initial candidate set by comparing the Arabidopsis and rice genomes using MoBIoS (Molecular(More)

RESULTS We develop an initial candidate set by comparing the Arabidopsis and rice genomes(More)
The sequencing and annotation of entire genomes has enriched the content of biological sequence databases such that new methods of sequence analysis, comparison and retrieval are being invented and rerun on an increasingly regular basis, generating new and more complete biological information. Examples include full genome comparisons and phylogenetic(More)
Biologically effective retrieval and analysis of sequences entails much more than finding matching strings. While identification and storage of biological sequences usually comprises long functional units (e.g. genes, proteins and chromosomes), the analysis and retrieval of those sequences is primarily concerned with finding ordered sets of short matching(More)
