Hi biostars!

I would like to visualize all repeated subsequences in a bacterial genome which might contain several million bases. Is there any software to do this task?

Thanks in advance.

You could try doing dot plots as a simple analysis first. While you could try doing one across the genome it may be better to do smaller sections first.

It's not alone.

There are a lot of tools mentioned here:

These tools are not only for bacteria, but sometimes they are suitable for plants and visa versa, for example.

MLVA as well may be used: http://www.mlva.net/
