Draw a threshold dotplot of two sequence
dotmatcher generates a dotplot from two input sequences. The dotplot is an intuitive graphical representation of the regions of similarity between two sequences. All positions from the first input sequence are compared with all positions from the second input sequence using a specified substitution matrix. The two sequences are the axes of the rectangular dotplot. Wherever there is "similarity" between a position from each sequence a dot is plotted. The threshold conditions for "similarity" are defined by the user.
