CASTOR is a software dedicated to the automatic nucleotide-sequence classification. It's inspired from the Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) technique. CASTOR software is designed by M. A. Remita, Ahmed Halioui and Abdoulaye baniré Diallo at the Laboratoire de bioinformatique at UQAM. The core program and the GUI were developped by M. A. Remita Tests, simulations and result analysis were performed by M. A. Remita, Ahmed Halioui, Malick Diouara, Bruno Daigle, Golrokh Kiani and Abdoulaye Banire Diallo. CASTOR version : 1.00

CASTOR project is funded by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT). CASTOR program and web interface are hosted at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in Canada. Restriction enzymes and their patterns were retrieved from The Restriction Enzyme Database (REBASE).
