Phobos plugin for Geneious.
Geneious is a commercial and easy to use DNA and protein sequence analysis tool.
In order to use the tandem repeat detection capabilities of Phobos in Geneious one has to install the command-line version of Phobos (version 3.3.10 or higher) as well as the Phobos plugin.
Sat-stat - Statstical analysis of Phobos output. Sat-stat compuputes tandem repeat characteristics of genomes analysed with Phobos. (Will be made available soon.)
