Transcription regulatory region analysis using signal detection and fuzzy clustering


MOTIVATION Presently available programs for the recognition of potential transcription factor binding sites in genomic sequences generally yield a huge amount of output. These output lists have to be filtered to obtain biologically significant elements, which is highly laborious work to be done manually. RESULTS We developed a strategy for systematic verification and improvement of the underlying profiles, and for their contextual analysis by a fuzzy clustering approach using non-redundant libraries of search profiles as a prerequisite.
