[…] a custom background gene list consisting of all genes with an assigned ptss. alternative start codons were predicted using prodigal []. dna sequence motifs upstream of ptss were identified with improbizer [] using default parameters and motifs were then searched for in sequences upstream tss belonging to other categories with motif matcher []; both programs consider location of the motif.

[…] []. newly identified genes were assigned with a locus tag containing a unique identifier., to find conserved dna sequence motifs in the c. diphtheriae nctc 13129 genome, the motif-finding software improbizer [] and the visualization program weblogo 3 [] were used. depending on the assumed motif location different input sequences were used. for the identification of σa promoter motifs the dna […]

[…] primary operons, with tsss assigned to the first gene of an operon, and sub-operons, which are indicated by tsss within primary operons., promoter motifs were detected with the web-based tool improbizer [], which uses the expectation maximization (em) algorithm. for each tss, the 50 bases upstream were extracted and the −10 and −35 promoter motifs were searched within the sequences using […]

[…] ssigned to annotated genes were analyzed. all the genes with identified tss were considered in the analysis of tls and rbs motifs, for this analysis 50 base pairs upstream of tls were considered. the improbizer [] program was used to find the motifs and the tool weblogo [] was used to generate the visualization charts. in both programs, the default settings were applied for the analysis. in the te […]
