MOTIVATION As more and more whole genomes are available, there is a need for new methods to compare large sequences and transfer biological knowledge from annotated genomes to related new ones. BLAST is not suitable to compare multimegabase DNA sequences. MegaBLAST is designed to compare closely related large sequences. Some tools to detect repeats in large sequences have already been developed such as MUMmer or REPuter. They also have time or space restrictions. Moreover, in terms of… CONTINUE READING
