Genome analysis IMEx : Imperfect Microsatellite Extractor

  title={Genome analysis IMEx : Imperfect Microsatellite Extractor},
  author={Suresh B. Mudunuri and Hampapathalu A. Nagarajaram},
Motivation: Microsatellites, also known as simple sequence repeats, are the tandem repeats of nucleotide motifs of the size 1–6bp found in every genome known so far. Their importance in genomes is well known. Microsatellites are associated with various disease genes, have been used as molecular markers in linkage analysis and DNA fingerprinting studies, and also seem to play an important role in the genome evolution. Therefore, it is of importance to study distribution, enrichment and… CONTINUE READING
