The regshape R package provides a classifier for predicting whether a given oligonucleotide sequence (of length l bp, where l would typically vary from six to as high as 25 bp) is, or is not, a transcription factor (TF) binding site.
BRB-ArrayTools is an integrated software package for the analysis of DNA microarray data.
BRB-ArrayTools contains utilities for processing expression data from multiple experiments, visualization of data, multidimensional scaling, clustering of genes and samples, and classification and prediction of samples. BRB-ArrayTools features drill-down linkage to NCBI databases using clone, GenBank, or UniGene identifiers, and drill-down linkage to the NetAffx database using Probeset ids.
RiboSketch is a drawing program for the production of RNA and DNA secondary structure images.The user provides an input file (.ct, .bpseq, .dbn, or the save file type .rs) containing the sequence and base-pairing of the strand(s).
Phred reads DNA sequencing trace files, calls bases, and assigns a quality value to each called base.
phrap is a program for assembling shotgun DNA sequence data. Among other features, it allows use of the entire read and not just the trimmed high quality part, it uses a combination of user-supplied and internally computed data quality information to improve assembly accuracy in the presence of repeats, it constructs the contig sequence as a mosaic of the highest quality read segments rather than a consensus, it provides extensive assembly information to assist in trouble-shooting assembly problems, and it handles large datasets.
Consed/Autofinish is a tool for viewing, editing, and finishing sequence assemblies created with phrap. Finishing capabilities include allowing the user to pick primers and templates, suggesting additional sequencing reactions to perform, and facilitating checking the accuracy of the assembly using digest and forward/reverse pair information.
tantan is a tool to mask simple regions (low complexity and short-period tandem repeats) in DNA, RNA, and protein sequences.The aim of tantan is to prevent false predictions when searching for homologous regions between two sequences. Simple repeats often align strongly to each other, causing false homology predictions.
