Cluster-Trainer 20071204 – Estimates Optimal Motif Weights for Cluster-Buster

Cluster-Trainer 20071204

:: DESCRIPTION

Cluster-Trainer is an auxiliary program for use with Cluster-Buster. It estimates optimal ‘motif weights’ to use with Cluster-Buster. These weights can also be interpreted as abundances of the motifs (occurences per kb). Given a set of DNA sequences and a set of motif definitions, Cluster-Trainer will estimate how abundant each motif is in the sequences, and the average distance between neighboring motifs.

Cluster-Buster 20100219 – Find Dense Clusters of Motifs in Nucleotide Sequences

Cluster-Buster 20100219

:: DESCRIPTION

Cluster-Buster is the third generation program for finding clusters of pre-specified motifs in nucleotide sequences. The main application is detection of sequences that regulate gene transcription, such as enhancers and silencers, but other types of biological regulation may be mediated by motif clusters too.
