ABSTRACT cid is a computational tool developed in the Web environment to process cloned DNA fragments with the objective of masking the vector and adaptor regions, detecting the presence of microsatellites and designing the most appropriate primer pairs for the amplification of the identified repetitive sequences. This entire process is executed by the user in a simple and automated manner with the data input as a Zip file of chromatograms or a multiFASTA file. Thus, it is possible to analyse dozens of sequences at the same time, optimizing data processing and the search for the information of interest. cid is freely available on
