MITE-Hunter was designed to identify miniature invertedrepeat transposable elements (MITEs) as well as other small (< 2Kb, default) class 2 nonautonomous transposable elements (TEs) from genomic DNA datasets. Class 1 TEs and long TEs can’t be found by MITE-Hunter. TEs with too many mutations and mismatches in the terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) may not be detected.
