Description

SigHunt analyses genomic signature of a DNA sequence and outputs the score DIAS. It consists of several tools:

Main tools

  • SigHunter -- batch program written in C that reads a fasta file and outputs genomic signature for specified, sequential windows of the DNA sequence.
  • SigHunt.r -- R functions that analyse genomic signatures provided by SigHunter

Additional tools

  • Discriminator -- R script for finding the most informative tetranucleotides with the TES
  • slaver.r -- R script written for easy manipulation of a large number of sequences
