To simplify, this page assumes eucakariotic genomic DNA repeat finding.

Repeat finding can be divided into two tasks, depending on availability of repeat library:

A) Library exists for a given (or possibly closely related species)

or

B) you construct such library de novo.


Task A is usually a prerequisite step for genome annotation and even blast searches. For newly sequences genomes one should start with B (constructing species specific repeat library).

Detecting known repeats

Most comonly used: Repeatmasker

RepeatMasker


  • Online web server [1]
  • command line

You have to have a FastA file (it can be multiple FastA). Type:

repmask your_sequence_in_fasta_format

You will get a file: your_sequence_in_fasta_format.masked --- name tells all

species options (choose only one):

-m(us) masks rodent specific and mammalian wide repeats
-rod(ent) same as -mus
-mam(mal) masks repeats found in non-primate, non-rodent mammals
-ar(abidopsis) masks repeats found in Arabidopsis
-dr(osophila) masks repeats found in Drosophilas
-el(egans) masks repeats found in C. elegans

De novo repeat library construction
