MOTIVATION Recombination can be a prevailing drive in shaping genome evolution. RAT (Recombination Analysis Tool) is a Java-based tool for investigating recombination events in any number of aligned sequences (protein or DNA) of any length (short viral sequences to full genomes). It is an uncomplicated and intuitive application and allows the user to view only the regions of sequence alignments they are interested in. RESULTS RAT was applied to viral sequences. Its utility was demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
