I am currently screening a genomic library for microsatellites. An
informatician has develloped a database to stock my sequencing files This
database is able to screen sequences (even large as BAC) for  perfect
di/trinucleotide  repeats. It currently doesn't work for imperfect repeats
and accept only .txt or .rpt files but in a next future should recognize
also .bio files from bioedit. It works on windows 9x / NT. It is in french
but really easy to use. If anyone interested in, I can provided it.
