PlantGDB uses the Vmatch program (with options -d -p -l 100 -exdrop 2 -identity 80) to screen EST sequences against TIGR Plant Repeat Database. The table below summarizes the total count of "repeats". Clicking on the count will browse the individual repeat-containing sequence. Because it is very difficult to correctly assemble repeat-containing ESTs, they are excluded from PlantGDB EST assembly.
To view a list of sequences flagged as repeat containing, click on the number in the "Sequence Count" column.
