meta is a program to produce and to align the TF-maps of two gene promoter regions. meta is very useful to characterize promoter regions from orthologous genes, or from co-regulated genes in microarrays, as it reduces the signal/noise ratio in a very significant manner, still detecting the real functional sites.
