Identification of patterns in biological sequences at the ALGGEN server: PROMO and MALGEN

Nucleic Acids Res. 2003 Jul 1;31(13):3651-3. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkg605.


In this paper we present several web-based tools to identify conserved patterns in sequences. In particular we present details on the functionality of PROMO version 2.0, a program for the prediction of transcription factor binding site in a single sequence or in a group of related sequences and, of MALGEN, a tool to visualize sequence correspondences among long DNA sequences. The web tools and associated documentation can be accessed at (RESEARCH link).
