Machine Learning Platform for the Classification of Nucleotide Sequences
Université du Québec à Montréal

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 Mohamed Amine Remita and Ahmed Halioui and supervised by Abdoulaye baniré Diallo at the Laboratoire de bioinformatique at UQAM.
The core program and the GUI were developped by Mohamed Amine Remita
Tests and simulations were performed by Mohamed Amine Remita and Ahmed Halioui
