A computer program, PROMOTER SCAN, has been developed to recognize a high percentage of Pol II promoter sequences while allowing only a small rate of false positives. A total of 167 primate Pol II promoter sequences, obtained from the Eukaryotic Promoter Database, and 999 primate non-promoter sequences, obtained from the GenBank sequence databank, were used(More)
SIGNAL SCAN is a program that has been developed to aid the molecular biologist in determining what eukaryotic transcription factor elements (and other significant elements) may exist in a DNA sequence under investigation. The program uses flatfile databases of these elements. SIGNAL SCAN is most useful for analyzing mammalian sequences due to the(More)
SIGNAL SCAN is a program that utilizes transcription factor databases to find potential transcription factor binding sites in DNA sequences. The program is now in its fourth version. SIGNAL SCAN 4 now includes, in addition to the Transcription Factor Database, the TRANSFAC and IMD (Information Matrix Database) databases. In addition, it now accepts GCG and(More)
SIGNAL SCAN is a program that utilizes a transcription factor database to find potential transcription factor binding sites in DNA sequences. The program is now in its third version. The SIGNAL SCAN transcription factor database format has changed and the program output format has been improved. New features allow the user to update the SIGNAL SCAN database(More)
This paper challenges the assumptions that have informed the design of teacher education programs which have focused on the development of content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge. It remains elusive to convince some teacher educators and teacher education authorities that teacher education programs designed using pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) is(More)
