T-REKS is an algorithm for de novo detection and alignment of repeats in sequences based on K-means algorithm. Minimal length of repeat arrays is 9 for true homorepeats and 14 for other repeats with potential biological meaning.

Psim is a coefficient relying on the Hamming distance between the repeats and their consensus sequence. Psim ranges from 0.7 to 1, considering that for lower values the number of false positive TRs significantly increases.
