Marina 1.03

:: DESCRIPTION

Marina is an OS-independent GUI tool for computing TFBS abundance given two sets of promoter sequences. Marina performs such computations by harnessing 7 knowledge-discovery statistical metrics and the hypergeometric distribution so as to infer magnitude of TFBS over-representation. A standardization algorithm known as Iterative Proportional Fitting (IPF) enables “agreement” across these various metrics as to which TFBSs are the most over-represented and which are not.
