Combined serial analysis of gene expression and transcription factor binding site prediction identifies novel candidate target genes of Nr2e1 in neocortex development

2015
BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4512088
PMID: 26204903

[…] se genes containing Nr2e1 binding sites within their promoter regions. Thus, interrogation of our pooled list of 1279 Refseq accession numbers was undertaken using three different software tools; the ORCA toolkit (tk) to perform the initial orthologous-sequence alignment and phylogenetic footprinting [], a customized version of oPOSSUM for prediction and storage of transcription factor binding sit […]

[…] cific DNA sequence. Software for scanning DNA sequences using the matrix models is widely available through computer programming modules (TFBS []), downloadable software (RSAT []) or online websites (ORCAtk []). Active discussions are ongoing in the bioinformatics field about how the models can be improved in light of the increasing amount of TFBS data arising from ChIP-Seq studies [].PSSMs are av […]
