A pattern and motif recognition program

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use Consensus, a pattern recognition program. This is a freely available web resource for finding motifs on DNA sequences. Consensus is based on a matrix consensus of overrepresented motifs in a set of sequences, coupled with a phylogenetic assessment of the statistical robustness of this motif. This is an extremely useful tool for promoter analysis and analysis of other sequence motifs as well.

You'll learn:

  • where to access the current version of Consensus
  • how to do a basic DNA motif search
  • how to understand and interpret your search results

More about the resource:

Consensus was developed and is maintained by the Stormo Laboratory at the Washington University in St. Louis. It is easy to use with a straightforward query input page and clear results. It yields results that can easily be taken further to elucidate which transcription factors, other regulatory elements, or protein motifs are denoted by the patterns it finds in your data set.
