Learn to use MEME (Multiple Expectation Maximum for Motif Elicitation) a motif discovery tool that can detect conserved motifs in a set of DNA or protein sequences that you provide. The results are emailed to you and are available on the web, and offer extensive computational and schematic details of the motifs it has found, with links to more information and additional analysis features. MEME is a powerful tool for promoter analysis, giving every detail needed for the interpretation of the results. Download the example data file used in the tutorial file by clicking here.

You will learn:

  • to create properly formatted files for sequence data
  • to understand the output display options and features
  • to visualize the locations and orientations of motif elements

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.
