(For the initial version)
I am grateful to Prof. Toshihisa Takagi (Human Genome Center, Univ. Tokyo) for his advice and help in initiating this project as well as continuous support, and to Prof. Naotake Ogasawara (Nara Inst. Sci. Tech.) for helpful suggestions and comments. I also thank Toshio Higuchi (Intec W&G) for programming help, and Yoichi Hashimoto and Kagehiko Kitano (Intec W&G) for their contributions at the initial stage of this project. This work was partly supported by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Priority Areas from Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan. The software development was initially supported by Human Genome Center, University of Tokyo.
