CHSMiner Downloaded: 1 Viewed: 0 Developed By: Center of Biology Big Data
CHSMiner provides an integrated GUI environment for the detection, evaluation and visualization of chromosomal homologous segments (CHSs) based on gene content alone. It is particularly useful to identify ancient CHSs that cannot be recognized from primary sequences. The features include:
1.Define CHSs based on shared gene content alone to fully explore potential homology.
2.Uniform design for both syntenies (between two different genomes) and paralogons (within the same genome).
3.Fast greedy algorithm to search for CHSs and formal statistical evaluation of the results.
4.Interactive visualization of CHSs from an individual one to whole genome pattern.
5.Entire Java package and convenient windows interface for end users.
Documentation & Usage:
CHSMiner is developed and maintained by CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology(PICB) ,Chinese Academy of Sciences. The software is only free of charge for non-commercial users.
