|SPECTRAL REPEAT FINDER|
Spectral Repeat Finder (SRF) is a program to find repeats through an analysis of the power spectrum of a given DNA sequence. By repeat we mean the repeated occurrence of a segment of N nucleotides within a DNA sequence. The repeats can be contiguous, in which case they are termed tandem repeats, or not, in which case they are dispersed. SRF is an ab initio technique as no prior assumptions need to be made regarding either the repeat length, its fidelity, or whether the repeats are in tandem or not.
