Abstract

CORRELATION FINDER is a free software which allows to seek exhaustively correlations between nucleotides in genomic sequences. It permits to analyze generic DNA sequences and genic sequences where the codon phase needs to be taken into account. Its graphic interface allows to easily set the parameters that characterize the motifs being sought. This tool handles large data sets and runs on the Windows operative system.


Keywords: correlation detection, splicing signal, sequence analysis
