PRINCE: Accurate Approximation of the Copy Number of Tandem Repeats
Workshop on Algorithms in Bioinformatics
Variable-Number Tandem Repeats (VNTR) are genomic regions where a short sequence of DNA is repeated with no space in between repeats. While a fixed set of VNTRs is typically identified for a given species, the copy number at each VNTR varies between individuals within a species. Although VNTRs are found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes, the methodology called multi-locus VNTR analysis (MLVA) is widely used to distinguish different strains of bacteria, as well as cluster strains thatdoi:10.4230/lipics.wabi.2018.20 dblp:conf/wabi/MansouriBVCC18 fatcat:npdlz3khzrhfhgqyuyo523uiwe
