Moving window algorithm. a) Example of how the algorithm is implemented with a 4 nucleotide restriction site. Each window is therefore 7 nucleotides and each successive window is shifted forward 4 nucleotides, ensuring minimal overlap. b) Example of all the possible sequences generated for each of the first two search windows using the moving window algorithm.
