components in living beings and are involved in several fundamental processes. Due to the amount and variety of this type of molecule, the manual identification of TEs can be a very hard task. The Group of Bioinformatics of Rio Claro has developed SATEComp, a computational system aimed at identifying putative TEs in biological sequences and helping in the analysis of the results. SATEComp uses three strategies in order to identify TEs (BLAST, RepeatMasker and Keyword searches) that can be used… Expand

Bioinformatics: Strategies, Trends, and Perspectives
For pattern (exact or not) search and similar problems, bioinformaticians have developed computational tools that apply techniques and algorithms well-known in Computing area in order to solve these important genomic problems. Expand


Transposable elements as sources of variation in animals and plants.

Here, TE-induced variation is viewed from three evolutionary perspectives that are not mutually exclusive and possible coadaptations between elements and their hosts that appear to have evolved to reduce the deleterious effects of new insertions on host fitness are described. Expand
Gapped BLAST and PSI-BLAST: a new generation of protein database search programs.
A new criterion for triggering the extension of word hits, combined with a new heuristic for generating gapped alignments, yields a gapped BLAST program that runs at approximately three times the speed of the original. Expand
Cytosine methylation and the ecology of intragenomic parasites.
It has become increasingly difficult to hold that reversible promoter methylation is commonly involved in developmental gene control; instead, suppression of parasitic sequence elements appears to be the primary function of cytosine methylation, with crucial secondary roles in allele-specific gene expression as seen in X inactivation and genomic imprinting.
