Gepard: a rapid and sensitive tool for creating dotplots on genome scale.
Krumsiek J, Arnold R, Rattei T. Gepard: a rapid and sensitive tool for creating dotplots on genome scale. Bioinformatics. academic.oup.com; 2007;23: 1026–1028.
Gepard provides a user-friendly, interactive application for the quick creation of dotplots. It utilizes suffix arrays to reduce the time complexity of dotplot calculation to Theta(m*log n). A client-server mode, which is a novel feature for dotplot creation software, allows the user to calculate dotplots and color them by functional annotation without any prior downloading of sequence or annotation data. AVAILABILITY: Both source codes and executable binaries are available at http://mips.gsf.de/services/analysis/gepard
