About MotifCut

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.
