RDP: detection of recombination amongst aligned sequences

Bioinformatics. 2000 Jun;16(6):562-3. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/16.6.562.


Recombination Detection Program (RDP) is a program that applies a pairwise scanning approach to the detection of recombination amongst a group of aligned DNA sequences. The software runs under Windows95 and combines highly automated screening of large numbers of sequences with a highly interactive interface for examining the results of the analyses.
