The aim of this article is to discuss the issue of comparing nucleotide sequences in order to detect chromosomal
rearrangements (for example, in the study of genomes of two cucumber varieties, Polish and Chinese). Two
basic algorithms for detecting rearrangements has been described: Smith-Waterman algorithm, as well as a new
method of searching genetic markers in combination with Knuth-Morris-Pratt algorithm. The computer program
in client-server architecture was developed. The algorithms properties were examined on genomes Escherichia
coli and Arabidopsis thaliana genomes, and are prepared to compare two cucumber varieties, Polish and Chinese.
The results are promising and further works are planned.
