Dotter 20131114 – Dot-matrix Program with Interactive Greyscale Rendering

DotterĀ 20131114

:: DESCRIPTION

Dotter is a graphical dotplot program for detailed comparison of two sequences. Here, every residue in one sequence is compared to every residue in the other sequence. The first sequence runs along the x-axis and the second sequence along the y-axis. In regions where the two sequences are similar to each other, a row of high scores will run diagonally across the dot matrix. If you’re comparing a sequence against itself to find internal repeats, you’ll notice that the main diagonal scores maximally, since it’s the 100% perfect self-match.
