Web server for TFBS PFM database search using PFV algorithm

This web interface is to demonstrate our PFV algorithm for Transcriptional Factor Binding Sites (TFBS) searching
and retrieval agasint TFBS databases. The PFV algorithm is a metric for TFBS-TFBS comparison.
A paper describing this algorithm was published on PLoS ONE 5(1): e8797

This site intends to be the mirror site to the original one hosted on UNC-Charlotte's server


Input the Motif PFM (See suppoted input formats):

Search in :

How many returns per query PFM ? :     distance metric :     k :


For help and general information, please refer to the Documentation and Help.
The source code for our algorithm (written as perl script) could be Downloaded from Here

Research Funding: The project is funded by a grant (EF0849615) from National Science Foundation.
