PMCID: 4417154
PMID: 25791631
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv195

[…] we created motif score profiles from a collection of motifs for 325 distinct fruitfly tfs that were characterized with the bacterial 1-hybrid (b1h) technology () and made these available through the genome surveyor interface []. our motif score profiles were calculated with the stubb tool (), which integrates any number of strong or weak predicted sites to estimate […]

DOI: 10.1002/dvdy.22728

[…] the kr_cd1 gap enhancer as the input csc (). it is important to point out that cis-decoder search protocols make direct use of csc information for enhancer prediction, while other resources, such as genome surveyor (kazemian et al., ), use site conservation as a criterion, but do not provide information to infer enhancer boundaries. given that multiple enhancer prediction programs that employ […]

PMCID: 2923081
PMID: 20808951
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1000456

[…] this computation is performed using a new “upward-downward” algorithm that scales linearly with the number of species. these single and multi-species motif profiles are made available through the “genome surveyor” interface at, we used published chip-on-chip data for eight tfs (bcd, cad, gt, hb, kni, kr, hkb, and tll) , to compare the ability of different motif […]

DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkn048

[…] genomes generates similar plots indicating that our pwms should have utility for the prediction of crms within related species (supplementary figure 8)., we developed a new genome analysis tool, genome surveyor, to rapidly search for putative crms based on the presence of overrepresented binding sites for a combination of tfs. a simple scoring function was chosen based on its ability […]
