Prediction of transcription factor binding sites is an important challenge in genome analysis. The advent of next generation genome sequencing technologies makes the development of effective computational approaches particularly imperative. We have developed a novel training-based methodology intended for prokaryotic transcription factor binding site(More)
With the advent of ChIP-seq multiplexing technologies and the subsequent increase in ChIP-seq throughput, the development of working standards for the quality assessment of ChIP-seq studies has received significant attention. The ENCODE consortium's large scale analysis of transcription factor binding and epigenetic marks as well as concordant work on(More)

MOTIVATION Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are usually scored under the assumption that the sequences being aligned have evolved by common descent. Consequently, the differences between sequences reflect the impact of insertions, deletions and mutations. However, non-coding DNA binding sequences, such as transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs), are(More)
