I have the following quiz question, but the Pattern1 for both (ACC|ATA) and (CGA|ACT) are unique (just grep for ACC and CGA), which means it might be difficult to find the starting pattern for the DNA genome string in the following case. Do I need something like GapReduce algorithm ?

Quiz : There is a single (linear) string with the following (3,1)-mer composition. Find it.




k-d mer

  • $\begingroup$ As shown in the picture in the question, just align the (k, d)-mers vertically without the help of assembler software, then compare whether they conflict with each other vertically. Maybe the software to do such comparison uses en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smith%E2%80%93Waterman_algorithm $\endgroup$
