Bioinformatics. 2004 Sep 22;20(14):2317-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/bth226. Epub 2004 Apr 8.

Abstract

Summary: Bellerophon is a program for detecting chimeric sequences in multiple sequence datasets by an adaption of partial treeing analysis. Bellerophon was specifically developed to detect 16S rRNA gene chimeras in PCR-clone libraries of environmental samples but can be applied to other nucleotide sequence alignments.

Availability: Bellerophon is available as an interactive web server at http://foo.maths.uq.edu.au/~huber/bellerophon.pl
