TandemSWAN Tool Description

The TandemSWAN software is written in C language, using some C++ features.

Algorithm searches for degenerate tandem repeats without insertions and deletions, but with a high substitution rate. It is based on calculation of the repeat statistical significance and identifies the length of the repeated unit and the number of repetitions.

We consider only the repeated structures whose number of copies is integer and greater than two. Since algorithm does not search for tandem repeats with period size less than 3, it does not detect poly-A or TATA-like sequences.

See TandemSWAN Parameters, Options and Output for details about program input and output.

Full information on the parameters and the main stages of the TandemSWAN algorithm are described in the TandemSWAN paper.
