MotifDetector is designed to find motifs in multiple DNA sequences.
It is written in Java.
How to use
Click here to start MotifDetector
- The button "Generate input" will generate a set of random
sequences as input. This will update the original contents in
the input box.
- The button "Find motif" will start the motif detector.
The buttons will turn to gray during the computation;
And the result will appear in the output box.
- When "Find single motif" is checked, the program will stop
as soon as it finds a specified (l,d) motif. Otherwise, it will
keep running until completeing the specified trials,
and will report at most 10 motifs.
- You can input your own sequences. Copy and paste your sequences
into the input box. (To copy, try to highlight the data and press ctrl-c.
To paste, move the cursor to the input area and press ctrl-v.)
Note that the sequences should be in FASTA format.
