xFITOM in pipeline

PMCID: 3323433
PMID: 22305460
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-58

[…] γ/β- and the α-proteobacteria were derived from experimental data from e. coli and several α-proteobacteria species as described previously [,]., comparative genomics analyses were carried out using xfitom, a program for binding site search in genomic sequences [,]. all chromosome sequences were searched for putative lexa-binding sites using the ri index [] and a motif-normalized threshold […]

PMID: 23032607
DOI: 10.4137/EBO.S9205

[…] considered putative binding sites and added to an expanded collection used as the standard in subsequent genomic searches., in silico searches of putative binding sites were performed with fitom and xfitom (http://compbio.umbc.edu/software). these programs take in a collection of known sites, from which they derive a position-specific frequency matrix (psfm). different scoring methods based […]

DOI: 10.1186/1759-8753-2-6

[…] previously in independent studies as leading to integrase inactivation [,]., the presence of lexa binding sites on all the retrieved inti homolog sequences was assessed by scanning them using xfitom http://compbio.umbc.edu/2280/, a generic program for binding site search in genomic sequences [,]. searches were conducted using the ri index [] and a motif-normalized threshold as reported […]
