MatCompare 1.3 – Compare Transcription Factor Binding Site (TFBS) position Frequency Matrices (PFMs)

MatCompare 1.3

:: DESCRIPTION

The MatCompare software provides methods for comparing transcription factor binding site (TFBS) position frequency matrices (PFMs). The user has a choice of using the Kullback-Leibler divergence, the chi squared test or the Fisher-Irwin exact test of similarity.

Censor 4.2.29 – Compares and Masks Protein or Nucleotide Sequences

Censor 4.2.29

:: DESCRIPTION

CENSOR is a software tool which screens query sequences against a reference collection of repeats and “censors” (masks) homologous portions with masking symbols, as well as generating a report classifying all found repeats.

BEDTools 2.30.0 – Compare Genomic Features

BEDTools 2.30.0

:: DESCRIPTION

The BEDTools utilities allow one to address common genomics tasks such as finding feature overlaps and computing coverage. The utilities are largely based on four widely-used file formats: BEDGFF/GTFVCF, and SAM/BAM. Using BEDTools, one can develop sophisticated pipelines that answer complicated research questions by “streaming” several BEDTools together.

PocketMatch 2.1 – Compare a pair of Binding Sites

PocketMatch 2.1

:: DESCRIPTION

PocketMatch is a software for comparison of binding sites in a frame invariant manner. Each binding site is represented by 90 lists of sorted distances capturing shape and chemical nature of the site. The sorted arrays are then aligned using an incremental alignment method and scored to obtain PMScores for pairs of sites.

TreeMap 3.0b – Compare Host & Parasite Trees

TreeMap 3.0b

:: DESCRIPTION

TreeMap is an experimental program for comparing host and parasite trees. TREEMAP performs cophylogeny mapping from a dependent evolutionary tree (e.g., a group of parasites) into an independent one (e.g., the hosts of those parasites), in order to recover the best possible coevolutionary explanation for the relationship between the two . The archetypal example is of the coevolution of pocket gophers and their chewing lice.
