[…] level in arabidopsis thaliana under normal and stressed conditions. the test group of sequences was divided into random subgroups and subjected to three de novo motif finding algorithms (seeder, weeder and meme). in addition to identifying sequence motifs, using an in silico tool we have predicted microrna target sites in the 3′ utrs of the translationally regulated genes, as well […]

[…] amino acid metabolism. the 1000 bp upstream flanking regions of the differentially expressed genes were analysed and nine overrepresented motifs were found using three motif discovery algorithms (seeder, weeder and meme). these results point to coordinated gene regulation at the transcriptional level controlling steady state potato responses to n sufficiency., potatoes (solanum tuberosum l.), […]

[…] was obtained for each species as the number of dehydrins used in this study. the sequences were downloaded using ncbi entrez direct e-utilities []., motifs were discovered using meme v4.9.1 [], seeder v0.01 [] and weeder v1.4.2 [], and using the five sets of sequences as separate input. significant motifs were selected based on following parameters: e-value ≤ 0.05 for meme, q-value ≤ 0.01 […]

[…] actual locations of cres need to be identified by a motif-finding tool [, ]. although a few new motif-finders have been developed to analyze large sequence sets from chip-seq experiments, such as seeder [], trawler [, ], chipmunk [], hms [], cmf [], steme [], dreme [], decod [], rsat [], and posmo [], they are typically used to find the cres of a chip-ed tf in a short region of sequences […]

[…] the objective function to discriminate positive and negative sets of sequences based on this score and uses heuristic hill climbing to search the sequences for motifs that maximizes this function. seeder is an integrated algorithm that combines the advantages of a pattern-driven method (used in seed pwm searching) and sequence-based method (used in pwm building) and identifies discriminative […]
