Hello netlanders -
Has anyone heard of or done for themselves the conversion of Dr. Bucher's
weight matrix descriptions of eukaryotic promoter elements to GCG Consensus.Csn
format? These matrices are described in _J._Mol._Biol._ (1990) 212: 563-578.
I am teaching a course this semsester in computer techniques in molecular
biology and would very much like to use this data to illustrate the power of
weight matrix approaches versus simple one-dimensional pattern matching. I
realize that the conversion probably is not that difficult, however, if it has
already been done, it sure would save me some time.
While on this topic, I've searched LIMB to see if there is a database of weight
matrix consensus descriptions and found nothing. Have any of you heard of a
collection of this type of data? I do have access to Dr. Bucher's EPD database
but am especially interested in weight matrix patterns.
Thanks in advance, Steve Thompson
