Phobos 3.3.12 – Tandem Repeat search tool for Complete Genomes

Phobos 3.3.12


Phobos is a tandem repeat search tool for complete genomes.PHOBOS can search for tandem repeats with a unit size of more than 5000 bp, which in the STAMP modules implies that primers can also be designed for minisatellites and tandem repeats with even longer units. Search settings and the output format of PHOBOS can be adjusted in a flexible manner, making it an ideal multipurpose tandem repeat search tool
