Multi-seed Lossless Filtration (Extended Abstract)


We study a method of seed-based lossless filtration for approximate string matching and related applications. The method is based on a simultaneous use of several spaced seeds rather than a single seed as studied by Burkhardt and Karkkainen [1]. We present algorithms to compute several important parameters of seed families, study their combinatorial properties, and describe several techniques to construct efficient families. We also report a large-scale application of the proposed technique to the problem of oligonucleotide selection for an EST sequence database.
