Description:etandem identifies tandem repeats in a nucleotide sequence. It calculates a consensus sequence for a putative repeat region and scores potential repeats based on the number of matches and mismatches there are to the consensus. For a repeat to be identified, it must be within the specified minimum and maximum size and must score higher than the specified threshold score. The output is a standard EMBOSS report file with details of the location and score of any tandem repeats. Optionally, the output can be written in the format of the Sanger Centre quicktandem program. Running etandem with a wide range of repeat sizes is inefficient. It is normally used after equicktandem has been run to identify putative sizes and locations of repeats.
