PROMO: detection of known transcription regulatory elements using species-tailored searches

Bioinformatics. 2002 Feb;18(2):333-4. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/18.2.333.


We have developed a set of tools to construct positional weight matrices from known transcription factor binding sites in a species or taxon-specific manner, and to search for matches in DNA sequences.
