Learn to use Gibbs Motif Sampler, a freely available web resource for finding motifs on DNA or protein sequences. The Gibbs Motif Sampler is a compendium of several analysis tools all developed from a basic algorithm called Gibbs sampling method. With this tool you will be able to easily identify motifs and conserved regions in DNA or protein sequences.

You will learn:

  • how to produce a file containing a set of sequences in FASTA format
  • how to upload sequences to one of the Gibbs Motif Sampler tools for analysis
  • how to do a basic DNA motif search

CATEGORIES

Algorithms and Analysis : This category contains various tools that may help perform analysis of different genomics data types. This may include sequence alignment, large-scale or complex queries, motif finding, or comparative assessments.

Nucleotides : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of nucleotide-based data. Some tools may also involve protein sequence information.

Proteins : Tools that are primarily used in the storage, retrieval, or exploration of amino acid based data. Some tools may also involve nucleotide sequence information.
