Software & databases



MitoBreak

A comprehensive on-line resource with curated datasets of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) rearrangements. MitoBreak provides a complete, quality checked and regularly updated list of breakpoints from three classes of somatic mtDNA rearrangements: circular deleted (deletions), circular partially-duplicated (duplications) and linear mtDNAs. Related publication: Nucleic Acids Research. 2014. 42 (D1): D1261-D1268.


EbolaID

EbolaID provides a complete, quality checked and regularly updated list of oligonucleotides for the Ebola virus. The database describes the genetic diversity across the Ebola genome to facilitate the design of accurate diagnostic methods and therapeutic approaches. Related publication: PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. 10(7): e0004757.


SPInDel

SPInDel is a method for species identification in all domains of life using multiplex analysis of variable-length sequences containing multiple insertion/deletion (indel) variants. Related publications: Nucleic Acids Res.2010;38(22):e203. Molecular Ecology Resources. 2012. 12(6):1190-5.


StifPInDel

The SNPYGoat Software allows users of the SNPYGoat multiplex system to rapidly identify several goat Y-chromosomal haplotypes. Related publication: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. 2008. 49:663-668.
