Table 1 Sliding window size and OU pattern types (oligomer lengths) selected for sequences of different length present in the SeqWord database.

From: The SeqWord Genome Browser: an online tool for the identification and visualization of atypical regions of bacterial genomes through oligonucleotide usage

Sequence length Sliding window Step OU pattern type
> 2 Mbp 8 kbp 2 kbp 4 mer
from 1 mbp to 2 Mbp 5 kbp 0.5 kbp 4 mer
from 0.5 mbp to 1 Mbp 3 kbp 0.3 kbp 3 mer
< 0.5 Mbp 1.5 kbp 0.15 kbp 3 mer
