Analyzes regulatory network in higher eukaryotes. CONVIRT integrates whole genome alignments, gene annotation, repeats and sequence information into a virtual chromosome, which allows the location of a chosen region at any distance from a specific gene. Besides, the software can generate all possible transcription factors (TF) combinations as well as the statistical significance of each combination in a given gene set. It actually covers seven organisms.
