• Tandem repeat interval pattern identifies animal taxa

    22 days ago - By Oxford Journals

    AbstractMotivationWe discover that maximality of information content among intervals of Tandem Repeats in animal genome segregates over taxa such that taxa identification becomes swift and accurate. Successive TRs of a motif occur at intervals over the sequence, forming a trail of TRs of the motif across the genome. We present a method, Tandem Repeat Information Mining , that mines 4k number of TR trails of all k length motifs from a whole genome sequence and extracts the information content within intervals of the trails. TRIM vector formed from the ordered set of interval entropies...
