TESS (Transcription Element Search Software) is available again at
It has been unavailable for the last 3 weeks. TESS was also previously
hosted at agave.humgen.upenn.edu; that URL is no longer valid.
This is a new version of TESS which has the following new features:
() Results are sortable after the search.
() Reports and optionally uses similarity score for matrices.
() Expanded Java applet for viewing search results.
() TESS can email search results to you in tabular form.
() The default value for the pseudocounts have set to 0.1 and
log-likelihood thresholds adjusted for better overall accuracy.
() There are forms for querying the IMD and CBIL databases of
positional weight matrices.
Thanks for using TESS and for any inconvenience our outage may have
