Allows users to discover putative transcription factor binding sites from a set of genes. POXO consists in a web-enabled tool series containing methods for various tasks. These tasks vary from functional evaluation and clustering of genes through sequence retrieval. It also includes tools to evaluate the coherence of the input gene set and to group these genes into functionally coherent subsets.
