Swan v6 – Motif Scanning

Swan v6

:: DESCRIPTION

SWAN (Stubb With Another Null) is a software to meant for genome-wide prediction of regulatory targets of a motif using a Hidden Markov Model. It differs from Stubb in that instead of asking Does the sequence have more sites than expected from a random (background) model of sequences?, it asks the question Does the sequence have more sites than the average genome-wide frequency of sites?
