Tutorial and training materials

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 will 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

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.
