Abstract

SUMMARY:

AluHunter is a database of taxon-specific primate Alu elements for use in phylogeny and population genetics. The software automatically isolates potentially polymorphic Alu insertions in sequences submitted to GenBank by screening the elements against reference genomes. The resultant database of variable markers is a valuable resource for researchers interested in characterizing Alu elements in their primate taxon of interest.

AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION:

The AluHunter database can be accessed at http://www.aluhunter.com.
