SOMBRERO 1.1

:: DESCRIPTION

SOMBRERO (The Self-Organizing Map for Biological Regulatory Element Recognition and Ordering) is a motif-finder that is based on the Self-Organizing Map neural network algorithm. In contrast to other probabilistic motif discovery tools, SOMBRERO poses motif-finding as a clustering problem. As such, SOMBRERO simultaneously estimates all motif signals in the input sequences (regulatory signals are separated from others during post-processing), as opposed to estimating each significant signal one-by-one
