  Description     : [Biology] Library for handling transcription factor binding sites

TFBS Perl OO modules implement classes for the representation of objects
encountered in analysis of protein-binding sites in DNA sequences.The
objects defined by TFBS classes include:

  * pattern definition objects, currently position specific score
matrices (raw frequency, information content and position weight
matrices)with methods for interconversion between matrix types, sequence
searching with a matrix profile, sequence 'logo' drawing and matrix
  * a composite object representing a set of position specific score
matrices, with methods for the identification of motifs within DNA
sequences with the set of profiles from its member matrices;
  * methods for searching pairwise alignments for patterns conserved
in both sequences (phylogenetic footprinting) defined for both matrix
profile and composite (matrix set) objects;
  * an object representing DNA binding site sequence, and an object
representing sets of DNA binding sequences, with methods and helper
classes to facilitate scanning, filtering and statistical analyses;
  * an object representing a pair of DNA binding site sequences, and
an object representing a set of such pairs, for storage, manipulation
and analysis of phylogenetic footprinting searches;
  * database interfaces to relational, flat file and WWW database of
position-specifc score matrices, with methods for searching existing
databases, as well as creating new ones containing user-defined
  * interfaces to matrix pattern generating programs

The modules within the TFBS set are fully integrated and compatible with
