A comparative tool for analyzing the regulatory potential of noncoding sequences. Our ability to experimentally identify functional noncoding sequences is extremely limited, therefore, rVISTA attempts to fill this great gap in genomic analysis by offering a powerful approach for eliminating TFBSs least likely to be biologically relevant. rVISTA analysis proceeds in four main steps: (i) detect TFBS matches in each individual sequence using PWMs from the TRANSFAC database, (ii) identify pairs of locally aligned TFBSs, (iii) select TFBSs present in regions of high DNA conservation and (iv) create a graphical display that dynamically overlays individual or clustered TFBSs with the conservation profile of the genomic locus. The rVISTA web server is closely interconnected with the TRANSFAC database, allowing users to either search for matrices present in the TRANSFAC library collection or search for user-defined consensus sequences.
Allows identification of transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) in nucleotide sequences, using a large library of matrix descriptions. MatInspector is a TFBS prediction programs that uses the information of core positions, nucleotide distribution matrix and Ci-vector to scan sequences of unlimited length for pattern matches. The software can find the potential binding sites of various activators and repressors that bind to specific DNA regulatory sequences. It is part of the Genomatix Software Suite.
A virtual laboratory for the study of transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) in DNA sequences. PROMO is a program for the prediction of TFBS in a single sequence or in a group of related sequences. Other programs exist for the prediction of TFBS that use weight matrices but PROMO contains a number of unique features. Among them we would like to highlight the following: (i) the possibility to select sites from any species or group of species of interest; (ii) the automatic construction of matrices that correspond to the selected taxonomic level; (iii) information in the output on other genes that may be similarly regulated; and (iv) the possibility to analyze and compare multiple sequences at the same time.
Combines evidence from matching sites found in orthologous data from several related species with evidence from multiple sites within an intergenic region, to better detect regulons. The orthologous sequence data may be multiply aligned, unaligned, or a combination of aligned and unaligned. In aligned data, PhyloScan statistically accounts for the phylogenetic dependence of the species contributing data to the alignment and, in unaligned data, the evidence for sites is combined assuming phylogenetic independence of the species. The statistical significance of the gene predictions is calculated directly, without employing training sets.
IMAGE / Integrated analysis of Motif Activity and Gene Expression changes of transcription factors
Determines causal transcription factors, as well as their binding sites and target genes. IMAGE is based on machine learning methods. It is able to predict motif activity based on contribution to enhancer activity, as well as, motif activity based on contribution to gene expression. This tool can deduce target sites of transcription factors that play a causal role in mediating a given transcriptional response.
Searches putative transcription factor binding sites in DNA sequences. Match is closely interconnected and distributed with the TRANSFAC database. It uses a library of mononucleotide weight matrices from TRANSFAC database and provides the possibility to search for a great variety of different transcription factor binding sites. Several sets of optimized matrix cut-off values are built in the system to provide a variety of search modes of different stringency. Users may construct and save their profile which are selected subsets of matrices including default or user-defined cut-off values.
ORCAtk / ORCA toolkit
A software package developed in support of diverse regulatory sequence analysis projects associated to the PAZAR database of gene regulatory information. ORCAtk is a system for finding putative regulatory regions and transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) within those regions. This is accomplished through phylogenetic footprinting by either aligning orthologous sequences with the ORCA aligner (pairwise analysis) or by extracting a phastCons score profile (multi-species analysis) and then identifying regions of significant identity. These regions may then be scanned with selected TFBS profile matrices. Matrices which score about a given threshold are then reported as putative TFBSs.
Predicts transcription factor binding sites (TFBS). PhysBinder algorithm makes use of both direct (the sequence) and indirect readout features (biophysical properties such as the bendability of the DNA) of protein-DNA complexes and significantly outperforms current state of the art approaches for in silico TFBS identification. Users can submit sequences for analysis in the PhysBinder integrative algorithm and choose from more than 60 different TF binding models. The results of this analysis are shown in an intuitive visualization and offer a way to steer future wet-lab experiments.
CMA / Composite Module Analyst
Identifies promoter-enhancer models based on the composition of transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) and their pairs. CMA uses an approach for defining a promoter model based on composition of single TFBS as well as their pairs located inside local regulatory domains.

CMA is a part of the commercial software ExPlain.
A method to enhance alignment of short motifs, even if their mutual sequence similarity is only partial. ConBind improves the identification of conserved transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) by improving the alignment accuracy of TFBS families within orthologous DNA sequences. In addition to the analysis of known regulatory regions, our web tool is useful for the analysis of TFBSs on so far unknown DNA regions identified through ChIP-sequencing. Our pipeline is based on three steps: (i) identification of suitable orthologous regions, (ii) motif-aware alignment of the orthologous sequences and finally (iii) visualization of conserved TFBSs. ConBind exposes a RESTful API interface, which allows to programmatically access (i.e. without using the web user interface) and integrate ConBind in other analysis workflows and tools.
Allows users to perform transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) prediction. DRAF is a program combining: (1) physicochemical and structural properties of the DNA binding domains of transcription factors (TFs), the DNA binding domain family classification and the amino acid binding mode preference to DNA bases; and (ii) nucleotide sequences of TFs’ target TFBSs. Moreover, this tool is able to reduce the false positive rate of TFBS prediction while using small number of required TFBS prediction models.
TFBS / Transcription Factor Binding Site analysis
Permits transcription factor binding site detection and analysis. TFBS is a package that provides a set of integrated, object-oriented Perl modules. It integrates generation, manipulation, storage and retrieval of patterns for transcription factor binding sites. It also allows users to scan sequences and alignments of sequences for matches to these patterns. This method reduces program coding time, enabling computational biologists to explore biologically meaningful topics rather than managing low-level data structures.
TFBIND / Transcription Factor BINDing site
Searches transcription factor binding sites (TFBS). TFBIND uses weight matrix in TRANSFAC R.3.4 database for detecting its preferred binding region in promoters. TFBIND includes the method of re-estimating cut-off values of TFs that mis-recognize other TF preferred regions. Our data source comprised 433 non-redundant vertebrate promoters including viral promoters, from Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) R.50. The method is applied to 205 vertebrate TFs that have frequency matrices in TRANSFAC Ver.3.4 and the cut-off values of all of them can be determined.

The version 2.0 offers an interactive table as well as graphics to dynamically alter the main screening parameters with automatic update of the list of identified putative TFBS. PREDetector 2.0 also has the following additional options: (i) access to genome sequences from different databases, (ii) access to weight matrices from public repositories, (iii) visualization of the predicted hits in their genomic context, (iv) grouping of hits identified in the same upstream region, (v) possibility to store the performed jobs, and (vi) automated export of the results in various formats.
SiTaR / Site Tracking and Recognition
A straightforward method for nucleotide composition-based detection of non-random matching motifs applied to prediction of transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs). One of the evident advantages of SiTaR is that it does not require equal length of the searching motifs, nor their alignment, nor a construction of a position weight matrix (PWM) nor any other modeling prior to the search. Any of those steps (aligning, trimming to equallength, etc.) leads to the loss of information (as any generalization) and hence introduces some degree of uncertainty in the final result. In comparison with position weight matrices-based tools, SiTaR shows better performance false discovery rate (FDR) and F-measure, which is the weighted harmonic mean of precision and recall.

Implements a method for accurately predicting cell-specific transcription factor (TF) binding for TF-cell line combinations based on only a small fraction (4%) of the combinations using available ChIP-seq data. TFImpute is based on a deep neural network with a multi-task learning setting to borrow information across transcription factors and cell lines. Compared with existing methods, TFImpute achieves comparable accuracy on TF-cell line combinations with ChIP-seq data; moreover, TFImpute achieves better accuracy on TF-cell line combinations without ChIP-seq data. This approach can predict cell line specific enhancer activities in K562 and HepG2 cell lines, as measured by massively parallel reporter assays, and predicts the impact of single nucleotides polymorphisms (SNP)s on TF binding. The TFImpute method was implemented using Theano and is freely available for download for non-commercial use.

PIPES also improves upon other methods developed for integrating data to predict transcription factor binding site (TFBS).
Mines for regulons, promoters and transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) in sequenced bacterial genome. PePPER uses an approach in which all available information on prokaryotic regulons and TFBSs is used to identify regulons in any query bacterium. The software allows uploading of un-annotated data, which is then processed automatically. It can be used to pinpoint a wide range of putative regulons and their cognate TFBSs in any bacterial genome on the basis of existing knowledge.
ProbTF / Probabilistic Inference of Transcription Factor Binding
Predicts transcription factor binding using experimentally verified Position Weight Matrices (PWMs). ProbTF provides a probabilistic framework which has three important features. First, ProbTF is probabilistic in nature and thus outputs a probability of binding (as opposed to a p-value). Second, the method answers the question of whether the whole promoter has a binding site. Third, ProbTF provides a principled way of combining multiple data sources, such as evolutionary conservation, regulatory potential, CpG islands, nucleosome positioning, DNase hypersensitive sites, ChIP-chip, and other prior knowledge, into a unified probabilistic framework.
Analyzes transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) on DNA sequences via several tools. Morpheus is a web tool that provides three programs allowing to: (i) localize binding sites and assesses their score; (ii) measure the predicted occupancy calculation of a DNA fragments via a biophysical model and (iii) compare two sets of sequences to evaluate the predictive power. The desktop version offers other features such as creation of matrix file from an alignment of binding sites.
Enables users to find the positions of DNA matrices on over 900 human miRNA genomic sequences. Infinity requires as input a consensus matrix, limited between 4 and 30 nucleotides, and users have to select the DNA region of interest. This tool allows selection of the type of pattern matching algorithm, and assists users to search about each miRNA such as: accession number, genomic location, number of chromosome, strand, transcription start site (TSS) position, length, cluster, or host gene.

Moreover, the investigator can retrieve the genome DNA sequences of the two orthologous genes, visualize graphically the genes' intron/exon structure and the surrounding DNA regions.
A scoring method for measuring sequence-motif affinity based on intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IFS) theory. SCintuit is designed to prevent overestimation of less conserved positions of transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs). For a given pair of bases, SCintuit is computed not only as a function of their combined probability of occurrence, but also taking into account the individual importance of each single base at its corresponding position. SCintuit was used to identify known TFBSs in DNA sequences. This method provides excellent results when dealing with both synthetic and real data.

It is based on a predictive model trained for that cell type. This tool assists users in the recognition of possible important non-coding mutations that may reduce or disrupt chromatin loops in cancer genomes. It is useful for the investigation of genomic sequence-level interactions.
Identifies transcription factor binding sites (TFBS) in DNA sequences. tfscan scans one or more DNA sequences for TFBS from the TRANSFAC database. The taxonomic group can be specified. An output file is written with information on the matches, including sequence ID and accession number, the start and end positions of the match in an input sequence and the sequence of the region where a match has been found. Binding factor information, where available, is given at the end of the matches for each matching entry.
ReLA / REgulatory region Local Alignment tool
A method optimized with the Smith-Waterman algorithm that identifies gene regulatory regions in genomic DNA sequences through local searches of clusters of coincident transcription factor binding sites between two or more DNA sequences. ReLA can identify these regulatory regions through the comparison of homologous (orthologs and paralogs) or co-expressed sequences. Our server also allows the identification of more than one regulatory region (alternative promoters) within the reference sequence.
DISCOVER / DIScriminative COnditional random field for motif recoVERy
Enjoys the dual advantage of modeling cis-regulatory modules architecture of sequences.
