ChIPMunk motif discovery tool now comes in a single package with diChIPMunk, ready to process your ChIP-Seq, HT-SELEX, DNase footprints & similar data.

Our sequence-crunching rodents are now accompanied by SPRY-SARUS motif scanner, to apply discovered PWMs to look for motif hits in given sequence sets.

You may also visit original ChIPMunk and diChIPMunk pages, or take a look on MACRO-APE and PERFECTOS-APE web tools, which are also useful for downstream analysis involving ChIPMunk results.

SPRY-SARUS motif scanner

SPRy-SARUS stands for Straightforward yet Powerful Rapid SuperAlphabet Representation Utilized for motif Search. This simple tool uses superalphabet approach to scan a given set of sequences for (di)PWM hits scoring no less than a given threshold.
