Advancing the application of genomic sequences through ‘Kmasker plants’

Source: ScienceDaily

The correct assembly of plant genomes can be hampered by a large amount of repetitive sequences. Researchers have developed a bioinformatics tool for the automatic detection of repetitive genome regions, based on the identification of k-mers (nucleotide sequences of a pre-determined length).
