Data storage and data coordination are important aspects of project design and execution. Pyrosequencing technology allows thousands of data-points to be collected per day. Consequently, a consistent and reliable method of data input and storage is vital. This chapter discusses the strengths and weaknesses of data storage systems.

A Windows application for compositional analysis of sequenced genomes (EMBL or GenBank flat files) is available as freeware. The application allows the user to quantify word bias using Markov chain analysis and it allows the user to generate sliding window data for GC-skew, AT-skew, purine excess, keto excess and discrete word counts. The mathematical routines reside in a dynamic link library (DLL), which can be used independently by other applications. Read More
