Regulation of gene expression occurs largely through the binding of sequence-specific transcription factors (TFs) to genomic binding sites (BSs). We present a rigorous scoring scheme, implemented as a C program termed "ModuleFinder", that evaluates the likelihood that a given genomic region is a cis regulatory module (CRM) for an input set of TFs according to its degree of: (1) homotypic site clustering; (2) heterotypic site clustering; and (3) evolutionary conservation across multiple genomes… CONTINUE READING
