Abstract

Summary: TargetFinder is a new software tool to search a database of annotated sequences for transcription factor binding sites located in context with other important transcription regulatory signals and regions, like the TATA element, the promoter, and so on, thereby greatly reducing the background usually associated with this kind of search. Availability: The TargetFinder Web service is available at http://hercules.tigem.it/TargetFinder.html.
