Tandem repeats are periodic segments in the DNA. They play an important role in forensics, tracing population evolution, genetic disorders and so on. Locating them in long DNA sequences is the problem addressed in this paper. A new technique is presented, based on the recently proposed Ramanujan Filter Bank (RFB). The RFB was shown to offer several advantages over the traditional period estimation techniques in DSP, such as those based on spectral estimation (STFT etc.). It involves simple integer operations, and detects several new repeats that could not be identified by popular existing techniques.1 Project Website: see [16].
