Motifs are small (usually <20bp) repeated sequences, which often correspond
to important regulatory signals.
MotifCut takes as input DNA sequences in FASTA format and
returns to the user a list of putative motifs, using a novel method, based on locating
Maximum Density Subgraphs.
For more information on MotifCut, see our preprint.
MotifCut can be downloaded as a C++ command-line tool.
There is also an experimental Mac OS X version.
