The applet version of GenPatterns is a demonstration of the "stand alone", GenPatterns program. The applet version has some restrictions:
To avoid the above limitations, download the full version by clicking here.
- It is slow: Due to the limited memory space reserved for an applet, the program runs slowly and will run out of memory quickly if the level is set far above the default of eight.
- File saving is disabled. Because of this, the color map changes are session specific and are not saved anywhere. Also, storing frequency files is disabled.
- There are quirks: The JavaVM varies from browser to browser, so some unpredictable things may happen. The only known quirk at this time is that some versions of netscape display the radio button labels incorrectly in the Axes menu until the label itself is clicked on.
The following DNA example data are available: (Any FASTA file can be used with the full version.)
- humanIe.fna (106 kb, Homo sapiens DNA sequence from PAC 747L4 on chromosome 1q23-24)
- yeastI.fna (229 kb, Saccharomyces cerevisiae chromosome I, complete chromosome sequence)
- myge.fna (576 kb, Mycoplasma genitalium, complete sequence)
- myp.fna (809 kb, Mycoplasma pneumoniae M129 complete genome)
- bb.fna (903 kb, Genomic sequence of a Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi)
- moco.fna (192 kb, Molluscum contagiosum virus subtype 1, complete genome)
- mesa.fna (238 kb, Melanoplus sanguinipes entomopoxvirus, complete genome)When the program asks to enter an input file name, enter one of the names above. Only these data files can be used because applet enabled web browsers have security restrictions that limit access to local resources (like files). There is a way to relax these restrictions, but the current approach was selected for simplicity. Keep in mind that the "stand alone" version of GenPatterns does not have these limitations.Start the GenPatterns applet by clicking the button below.
