MONKEY 2.0 – Identify Matches to DNA Motifs in Multiple Alignments

MONKEY 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

MONKEY is a set of programs designed to search alignments of non-coding DNA sequence for matches to matrices representing the sequence specificity of transcription factors.MONKEY employs probabilistic models of factor specificity and binding-site evolution, on which basis we compute the likelihood that putative sites are conserved and assign statistical significance to each hit.
