[…] not conserved in the other species. finally, the conservation of functional sites often spans a region longer than the sites themselves, increasing the number of predicted nucleotides., we then ran footprinter also on this sequence set. again, the best performance (79% at the site level, 70% at the nucleotide level) was obtained by using a parsimony score threshold of 0 (no substitution allowed […]

[…] of the reference sequence, with 84% of success at the site level and 76% at the nucleotide level (see table 1). thus, with the same specificity, weederh yields a higher sensitivity. introducing for footprinter significance evaluation of motifs (using the different significance settings available and trying different combinations) did not improve the results, increasing the specificity but also […]
