Welcome to GenCompress!

What's GenCompress?

GenCompress is a compression algorithm to compress DNA sequences.

Who did it?

Xin Chen, Ph. D. student of Peking University of Beijing, China

Sam Kwong, Associate Professor of City University of HongKong, China

Ming Li, Professor of University of Waterloo, Canada

When programed it?

It was programmed in the last year of old century.

What about it?

As we know, GenCompress achieves the best compression ratios
among all the compression algorithms for genetic sequeces. Furthermore,
it can be used as a tool to approximate a distance measurement between
two sequences.
