rMotifGen | Random motif generator for DNA and protein sequences


Creates simulated DNA and protein sequences where the motifs within the amino acid sequences are permitted to mutate. rMotifGen can randomly build DNA or amino acid sequences using a simple background model. It is based on a position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM) approach. This tool is available through a command line version and a graphical interface. It is flexible to suit any desired need, including the construction of large scale sets for simulations.
